Documentation of what transaction properties do, and svn:date

From: David Glasser <glasser_at_mit.edu>

Right now, it's not actually stated anywhere that transaction
properties become revision properties. Attached are two flavors of a
patch to add that.

One of them just states that transaction properties become revision
properties; the other points out the caveat that svn:date is treated
specially and essentially cannot be set to something custom during a
commit. This is currently undocumented behavior; in my opinion,
explicitly calling svn_fs_change_txn_prop(txn, "svn:date", date, pool)
should in fact allow you to set the svn:date prop to a value of your
choice. (The only real problem I can see with this is that right now,
you need to activate revprop changes to allow svn:date to be set to
non-current times; if svn_fs_change_txn_prop actually did what it
looked like for svn:date, that wouldn't be the case.)

(A middle ground would be to say that non-svn: transaction properties
become revision properties, and that svn: transaction properties may
behave in an unspecified manner.)
