It should be easy to implement editing revprops without using SQLite:
in case someone modify revprop non-packed revprop file is created, in
read operation non-packed revprop file should be considered as more
up-to-date. In next svnadmin pack operation these non-packed files
should be merged back to packed one. Daniel, is it makes sense for
