Mark's blog post there says the spec was developed jointly with Subclipse so that's at least one other.
Did you (Stefan) check inheritance works as expected?
The spec at
(give the username 'guest' and no password to access it) says:
- If the properties are not set for a folder, the client should search upwards
It doesn't say the client will search up into a parent folder in the repository that isn't in the WC.
That suggests your change may break quite a lot of use cases unless the info I found above is out of date.
If I have misunderstood something, then the Subversion feature "Inheritable properties" may possibly have made this "Just work", possibly; but I don't think so; but at least that feature should make it much easier to implement inheritance that searches up beyond the WC root to a folder that's only in the repository, if/when the various clients choose to do so.

That part I agree with.
