The motivation of this came from the fact that Subversion doesn't
provide a way of having per-repository configs. So we had to find a way
around this. Using folder properties was the only 'fast' way to do this.
By using folder properties, TSVN can read them without first contacting
the repository. You see, each connection to a repository takes at least
a second, and now imagine the commit dialog staying locked for seconds
(depending on how fast the repository server answers) just to have those
properties available.
