I shy away from 'svn:auto-props' because eventually we'll have some
sort of ignores-server-dictated-config via inheritable props and
svn:ignore is already taken, so we probably want some common prefix to
this class of inheritable properties.

Sure, it's up to the user, caller, script, etc., but this is a
reserved property that Subversion itself will always consider
inheritable, so I don't believe "iprop" is misleading in any way.

Regardless, I don't feel very strongly about this one way or the
other. Barring any prop-"iprop" feedback I'll switch it to
'svn:config-auto-props' in the near future.
