Setting Revision Properties before Commit

From: David Weintraub <qazwart_at_gmail.com>

In Subversion 1.2, I am allowed in a pre-commit script using svnlook
to verify if a transaction has a particular revision property set. For
example, I can easily examine "svn:log", "svn:date", and "svn:author"
doing something like this:

$ svnlook propget --revprop -t $TXN svn:author http://$url

However, the "svn propset" command doesn't allow me to set the value
of a revision property until the revision itself has been committed.

Is this an oversight? Is it considered a bug, or is there a reason why
it was decided that users should not set revision properties before a
commit takes place?
