At the UI level, I have no evidence that we need a general
"--ignore-prop" feature, and, although we could commit this for
experimentation, I would not like to see it in a released version
without knowing it's valuable enough to justify its existence. (If it is
valuable, then it seems likely that the converse feature for noticing
ONLY certain properties would be needed too.)

Please have a look at 'svn log -v
svn://svn.freebsd.org/base/stable/7/sys/nlm' and see if you still
agree by the time you get to the end.  Try and find some real content
in that log output other than useless property spam.

I agree that mergeinfo must be filtered out (until a better solution is found), I also agree that generic property ignore is probably not very useful, and it makes it even easier to create bad designs and abuse properties further. But why set an option to ignore it? I would rather default to ignoring mergeinfo and add an option to turn it on!
