Inheritable properties need to behave more like the boolean support in
our config rather than the existing property boolean support. I.E.
explicit true and false values with a default value if a value isn't

I think it'd be best to introduce this new style of boolean property
only to new svn: properties that we add. Leave the existing ones as
empty or "*" (actually any value but it's folded to "*" by our
client). This avoids any breakage with existing users, though I
really don't expect that anyone would set the value to "false"
expecting it to be treated as true.
