maintaining a list of svn: revprops

I'd like to move the svn:sync-* revprop definitions from within
svnsync/main.c to the public svn_props.h file. Here's why:

We need a single registry for all svn: revprops.

   - Someday the svn codebase may get large enough that one part may
     start accidentally stomping on another's revprops. It's not good
to scatter
     the definitions

   - While API consumers know that it's illegal to invent new svn:
     props, it's useful for them to see the exact list of 'official'
     svn: props.

     (In particular, my itch here is that I'm writing a
      pre-revprop-change hook program which wants to enforce that
      *only* the official ten svn: revprops are ever tweaked.)

   - The public svn_props.h has always been our registry until
     recently. I'm simply maintaining this registry by sucking in
     svn:sync-* props out of svnsync/main.c.
