On a positive note, I was able to hack the trunk version of
'svn propdel' to take a base revision parameter to allow me to
delete the incorrect 'svn:special' properties on the files
that were causing the checkout problems.

I used the -r parameter instead of creating a new --base-rev
option. Is a new option warranted? Is there precedence for --base-rev?

I'm willing to create a patch, but need some direction on
how this should really work.
