Why not just 'svnadmin setrevprop -t txn' ? New option, but not a new
subcommand. I don't think it all that important to distinguish between
"transaction props" and "revision props" once we get outside our API
space and into user command space. Our users understand "revision
props" as properties on revisions, and transactions as revisions-to-be
... the rest is fairly trivial inference.

(And yes, 'svnlook' should be kept read-only.)
