By "normal import rules" I meant the method that has been used until now to
import unversioned items - including a heuristic to decide if it is binary, and
a rule to set the "svn:executable" property if its operating system
"executable" bit is set.

Well, please note that I am asking the developers - including you - to decide
on what behaviour is wanted. Making that decision involves thinking about
typical use cases and comparing the pros and cons of each behaviour option. If
you modify the patch before that decision is made you might have to un-modify it!
