I think at one point I suggested that iprops have a trinary nature, instead of
binary:

1) name
2) value
3) inheritable

with a signature like this:

     propset PROPNAME --IPROP [INHERIT] -r REV [PROPVAL | -F VALFILE] [URL]

All iprops are always directly inherited by files contained within that
directory. Any iprop set with the INHERIT flag would also be recursively
inheritable by child directories in the contained tree (or we could change the
keyword to INFECT ;-).

This allows us to have our cake and inherit it too... ;-)
