What clients prevent this? My 1.4.3 client on Windows does not seem to
stop this (see below). What would direct manipulation involve? I don't
think anything unusual was done in this case.

Also I noted in the SVN book the following at:


"A property name must start with a letter, a colon (:), or an underscore

Is that really ok to use a colon?

On my current system:

C:\Users\conor\work\repo\working\test>svn --version
svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
   compiled Jan 18 2007, 07:47:40

C:\Users\conor\work\repo\working\test>svn add test.txt
A test.txt

C:\Users\conor\work\repo\working\test>svn ps svn::keywords Revision test.txt
property 'svn::keywords' set on 'test.txt'

C:\Users\conor\work\repo\working\test>svn commit -m "test"
Adding test.txt
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 2.

C:\Users\conor\work\repo\working\test>svn ps blah:blah Test test.txt
property 'blah:blah' set on 'test.txt'

C:\Users\conor\work\repo\working\test>svn commit -m "test2"
