This argument is most curious! It applies to any configuration file on any
computer running any system that can indeed be messed-up in any way by any
user or admin.

AFAIK, the usual approach is to have the file installed with predefined
values, and editing such a config file should be a most rare event.

Well, I was most happy with the static stuff and the '--force' option,
but as you seemed to rejected it, so I provided another solution;-)

ISTM that if the server is to provide the client with some configuration,
it would be in the form of a server-customized version of the current
client configuration file? That would be the most straightforward
implementation. Then the ability to configure the client with a list of
allowed svn properties would be needed there also.

Indeed, as the patch seems to be rejected, I have to live with this "feature".

Have a nice day,
