Obviously I was mistaken with this revision number, but I played
around a bit and learned something. ra-dav has not shown error
output from pre-revprop-change in a very long time; it doesn't
even show it with 1.4.0. All it shows is:

subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/fetch.c:1906: (apr_err=175002)
svn: DAV request failed; it's possible that the repository's pre-revprop-change hook either failed or is non-existent
subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/props.c:1104: (apr_err=175008)
svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged

ra-svn is fine on 1.4.0, and as I said earlier, still fine on
trunk today. It was in r22712 that ra-dav stopped showing any
indication at all that the revprop change didn't go through.
