in-database properties

Hey all,

After my recent rounds of work, it now appears that we're "ready" to
move to in-database properties.

If you weren't aware, we record properties into the old-style files
*and* into the database. There is a TEST_DB_PROPS define in wc/props.c
that will test/assert that these properties are in lock-step each time
we try to read properties. Except for a couple probably-minor failures
in upgrade_tests, the entire test suite now passes when this define is

Thus, we should be ready to being reading props only from the
database, and stop writing out the old-style props files.

To that end, I'm going to bump us from today's "format 16" to format
17 some time this week. This will be an auto-upgrade process, so there
will be no need to use 'svn upgrade'. f17 will also include the
introduce of .svn/pristine/ for the work Julian is doing.

Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns.
