Yes, that is the issue. The question is, is Subversion's behavior
good or not. If the command is being used by a human, it's fine; on
the other hand, once I get this test working I'm going to implement
"svn propedit URL", and if we support "svn propedit URL" and not "svn
propset URL" I can imagine folks using mock editors in scripts.

(One possibility would be to implement "svn propset URL
--i-have-seen-revision 1234", with a less stupid name, so that scripts
could do something like "svn info" to get the current rev, "svn pg URL
-r1234", ensure that it's what they mean to change, and "svn ps URL
--i-have-seen-revision 1234". I'm not sure that this makes sense
