Hi Gerco,

Like David, I had a quick scan over the patch. I think it looks pretty
good, though I'll wait for your next post to do a proper review. (Could
you update libsvn_ra_svn/protocol next time round, though?)

I think David might have been suggesting an additional call -
change_rev_prop(), perhaps (or 'properties', accepting a hash?).

The ra_dav code is a little scary, but if we can get this working over
ra_svn first, we can work out what needs to be done over DAV.

I think it would make sense to disallow any changes to the svn:
properties, since they're already set through other processes (and you
wouldn't want, for example, to have to work out whether someone could
override svn:author).

I also wondered whether we should be calling the pre- and post-
revprop-change hooks, or whether we just leave it to the pre-commit
