I think that's reasonable. Having a propdel result in a textual diff
is rather unexpected, and in some sense the in-file expanded portion
of the keyword is "part of" the property. We'll have to do it
carefully, of course, because the working file might have local mods.

+1 from me, but I'd like to hear at least one other developer come to
the same conclusion before we implement it, as this is a somewhat
noticeable behavior change.
