Here's what the prototype currently does. Any suggestions for better
wording are most welcome.

$ svn ps svm:ignore x .
svn: E195011: 'svm:ignore' is not a valid svn: property name; did you mean 'svn:ignore'?
(Use --force if you're sure about 'svm:ignore'.)

$ svn ps gvm:ignore x .
property 'gvm:ignore' set on '.'

$ svn ps gvn:ignore x .
svn: E195011: 'gvn:ignore' is not a valid svn: property name; did you mean 'svn:ignore'?
(Use --force if you're sure about 'gvn:ignore'.)

$ svn ps svn:ignores x .
svn: E195011: 'svn:ignores' is not a valid svn: property name; did you mean 'svn:ignore'?
(Use --force if you're sure about 'svn:ignores'.)

$ svn ps svn:local-ignore x .
svn: E195011: 'svn:local-ignore' is not a valid svn: property name; did you mean 'svn:global-ignores'?
(Use --force if you're sure about 'svn:local-ignore'.)
