So, this was an oversight then? Can I submit a bug against this? Right
now, for submitting a bug number, each Subversion client GUI does
different things to circumvent this particular issue which means that
each user could be doing this a different way (if at all).

If there was a standard way to set a subversion revision property, all
of the different Subversion client GUIs would use the same method (and
I could enforce it with a hook).

I use to work as a ClearCase admin, and ClearCase had something
similar to hooks called "triggers". The problem is that ClearCase
trigger scripts executed on the client. This gave me a bit more power
(I could interact with the client), but it meant making sure each
client installation was just so. With Subversion, I don't care which
client the developer prefers since the hook scripts run on the server.
Writing my own bindings puts me in the predicament of wondering about
the configuration of the client systems.
