Well, this isn't something that should be happening at commit time anyway. It
should be happening at "svn add" time, or between then and commit, so you've
got a chance to check and correct it. So it should be done by "auto-props",
except that that feature really needs to be activated through inherited
properties or at least repository-distributed configuration rather than through
individual users' local configurations. Or done by "make" or checked by "make
check". I've long thought (and occasionally mentioned) that we could usefully
put a "check-source" stage in "make check", to check things about the source
code like these properties, and whether there are any tab characters in C
files, etc.
