My understanding is that Mike proposed properties because he could not
figure out a good way to jam the client version into the capabilities
strings. I think this led him to remember that people have often
wished they could reject a commit based on svn:log BEFORE the client
wasted time sending all the content to the server.

FWIW, I basically agree with Mike that these are both high-value,
low-cost features that users have consistently asked for.
