And even then, what exactly is the effect? What code exactly is going to
bother noticing that the property's value is not "*", given that we
promise it to always be "*" whenever the property is present? :-)

(I've always wondered why symlinks are represented as

    metadata = { 'svn:special' : '*' }
    data = "link $target"

rather than as

    metadata = { 'svn:special' : 'link' }
    data = "$target"

.)
