Issue #4588, part 2: Property checking in svnadmin load

From: Stefan Fuhrmann <stefan.fuhrmann_at_wandisco.com>
Date: Sun, 23 Aug 2015 22:24:18 +0100

When loading a dump file we

1. Complain about invalid property contents,
2. Provide no simple way of fixing trivial cases in 'svnadmin load', but
3. Inconsistently provide those automatic fixes if the user jumps through
   a bunch of hoops: http://stackoverflow.com/a/32030939/421049

Given that the server does not really care about whether props content
is valid and / or often had to deal with anyway before dumping, I'd like
suggest 'svnadmin load' warn about them but at least in trivial cases
accept them. Aborting a load - potentially late in the process - without
strong reason seems unfriendly.

More importantly, 'svnadmin load' needs to grow an option to normalize
properties the same way svnsync does.
