Subversion has always disallowed commits of propchanges on a directory
that's not fully up to date. Why? For the simple reason that, after the
commit happens, that directory cannot be considered "at the new revision X"
because we never got the changes we were missing from the server.

What happened with merge tracking is that propchanges on directories
suddenly became quite a bit more common. Like ... after every merge.
