This is a kinda soft one, since we automatically normalize the values of
these properties:

$ svn pset svn:executable '' iota
property 'svn:executable' set on 'iota'
svn: warning: W125005: To turn off the svn:executable property, use 'svn
propdel';
setting the property to '' will not turn it off.
$ svn plist -vR
Properties on 'iota':
  svn:executable

$

This is a *better* case, but preeeeeeetty edge-casey still as arguments go.
