Right now, from what I see in this thread, we don't even know what "svn
purge" is supposed to do.

The svn: propery namespace is reserved for Subversion's use. Therefore
you shouldn't use it i a script that's not part of Subversion. It's as
simple as that.

Of course, it you do invade SVN's namespace, and we someday invent a
"svn purge" that uses the same property with different syntax and
semantics, I'll just say "I told you so, but you wouldn't listen" and
move on.
