The behavior is like this:
You enable auto-props, and for each file-type you want to save 'special'
information, you add a list of which special informations. An example from
my config:

[auto-props]
*.rsrc = svn:metadata=resource,finder; svn:mime-type=application/rsrc

Then at various points we look at 'svn:metadata' and load up any libraries
we can find with the right names (or no-op if none are found), giving them a
crack at the file (to create props, check if they've changed, and restore
from props)

There is a global option to enable/disable the functionality as well. It
wouldn't be so hard to add functionalty to choose sets based on the
file-system the file resides on...but it was beyond what I needed so I
stopped.

I will...only because my machine can't run it.
