I have no problem with the directory structure - it is how inherited properties
get moved/copied that is the big messy question.

See, the problem is a "tag" should copy all of the properties as
I want the tag to be a "frozen in time marker" yet certain branches
(not normal, but pre-release branches) I don't want the properties
copied, or at least not some of them. This is where the whole iprops
thing gets to be hairy. All properties need to be copied some of the
time but not all of the time. But some properties need to be copied
all of the time (mime-type, needs-lock, etc)
