There were a couple of reasons we made this change:

* SVN can walk the working copy more efficiently than we can
* SVN will essentially walk past the root of the WC. So you can set these
properties on the root of your repository if you wanted, and they would
still be found. In the old code, the properties had to exist on the part
of the repository you had checked out.

One side-effect I can imagine would be when svn:externals are used and you
have selected a path from an external. I think the old code would have
walked back to the root of your working copy, but the SVN code would walk
back to the root of the external, because to SVN an external is a WC inside
of a WC.

I tend to think this behavior is right, but I can easily envision scenarios
where it will be a behavior change.
