If we ultimately decide[1] to allow svn:global-ignores to be
disregarded with the --no-ignore option, then I suggest it makes sense
for 'svn add' and 'svn import' to disregard the svn:auto-props
property when the --no-auto-props option is used. Anyone disagree?

[1] And it certainly looks as if we are going in that direction. I'll
give this thread a day before making any changes, so all interested
parties have a chance to weigh in.
