'svn propedit' works by:

(1) asking the repository for the current value of the property *and*
its revision
(2) letting the user edit the property
(3) using an API to say "set the property to the new value, using the
revision we got in Step (1) as base_revision

For propset/propdel the user would have to manually look up the base revision.
