Well, I'd suppose the patch has the same status as it had back in February
when I first suggested something like this - an unofficial, unapproved
patch that does the job for me, and that will probably not make it into
Subversion itself for many reasons (and, just for the record, I do agree
with those reasons).
The main reason was, actually, mentioned in this thread - this is only
a per-file setting, and thus has to be propset'd for each and every file
in the source tree. Either repository-level options or inherited properties
would be a much, much better approach - thus, this is only a temporary
Still, I'm glad to know that you like it :)
