Separating properties into "svn:*" and "others" seems too restrictive.
What if somebody wants to ignore the svnmerge-integrated property, or
ignore svn:mergeinfo while not ignoring svn:executable? I suggest using
a regular expression to decide which properties to ignore.

I'd like a way of displaying diffs for deleted properties, but not
displaying anything about properties for a deleted path; the fact that
the path was deleted is enough for me.

Perhaps split the "delete" keyword into two keywords with the two
meanings, or perhaps guess which of the two behaviours is wanted from
whether the generate_diffs option contains the "delete" keyword.
