Unfortunately the implementation
(libsvn_client/add.c:all_auto_props_collector()) already explicitly
handles 'propname' as if it were 'propname=', i.e., sets the value to
"". Since the "documentation" in the generated config file already
implies that the '=' can be absend, I'd say this behaviour is pretty
much set in stone.
