Peter, you must have missed the beginning of this thread. I'm not
arguing against the need for a way of ignoring changes to svn:mergeinfo,
only against the need for a generic "ignore properties P1, P2, ..."
feature. I agree that there is an acute problem with mergeinfo spam, and
an "ignore mergeinfo changes" interface could be an effective short-term
way to address it.

Unless you're saying you have a problem with properties other than
svn:mergeinfo?
