Hey Paul,

svn:mergeinfo is also inheritable (ignoring subtle differences in
inheritance semantics), yet we don't call it svn:inheritable-mergeinfo.

So I'm wondering if we can find better names for these new properties.

What about svn:default-ignores and svn:default-auto-props?
Or perhaps names which correspond to the configuration file counterparts,
svn:global-ignores and svn:auto-props?
