Not really. The props are read from the folder you select for
committing. But if the props aren't found there, TSVN will search up in
the folder tree to find them until a non versioned folder is found or
the tree root (e.g. c:\) is found.

Not just for that. Each project may want to set this to a value which
isn't used in other projects.

Maybe ;)

Currently not. I'm still trying to find a way to implement this without
too much work...

Then that's not a big problem.

Good point.
There's just one little problem: once an edit control is created, it's
not possible to change the 'word wrap' anymore.

Yes, it's on a timer. The edit control is a little bit of a beast and
can't be customized easy. For example, you can't override it's drawing
