It better do more than that, because I added it (in r5424) to support
byte-for-byte output of binary property values. It was touched up
later (r14505) to not print a trailing newline when used on revprops.

But yeah, as you noted, our svn: props get munged and translated and
stuff, so the --strict output isn't so strict after all for those
