FWIW, a use case of "svn propdel ... URL" just came up today on the
cvs2svn mailing list.

cvs2svn can optionally record the original CVS version numbers in a tag
called "cvs2svn:cvs-rev". Unfortunately, after the conversion, these
tags linger around misleadingly. The user would like to remove them
all, but has 1300+ tags and branches so checking out the whole
repository is out of the question. It would be far less painful if he
could do

    svn propdel -m "message" -R cvs2svn:cvs-rev URL

Of course cvs2svn could also offer this functionality as a last cleanup
commit, but currently it does not do so.
