I'm not sure, but maybe it would be useful for example in generic
pre-commit hook scripts for enforcing auto-props:

for x in (svnlook changed -t $TXN):
  if ($x is addition or propmod):
    autoprops = svnlook pg -t $TXN --show-inherited-props svn:auto-props $x
    enforce_props(autoprops, $x)

(possibly combined with some authz that makes the
project-base-directory, containing svn:auto-props, only writable by
project administrators or something like that)

But then again, this would probably be a very inefficient way to check
this. If the commit adds 100 files, it doesn't make much sense to
propget 100 times the same autoprops from some project-root-dir.

But I guess in some cases it can still be quite useful, and it doesn't
hurt to have the option available, does it :-) ?
