What are we trying to provide protection against? I think it is mainly
against someone switching their WC to a tag, then forgetting they have
done that and making changes which they commit to the tag instead of
trunk. So this is really only important if you _do_ have a WC.

Also, if you apply the property to trunk, when you create the tag the
property will be copied there as well. The trick is in deciding how to
use the tag. Maybe the simplest way is just to mimic what we already
have, so:
tsvn:commitwarning = /release/
will generate a warning if you try to commit to a path which contains
'/release/'.

It would be nice if you could specify multiple paths in the property,
newline separated, as for the ignore property.
tsvn:commitwarning = /tags/
/release/
/vendorbranch/

To make this work in practice, the end user has to make sure the
property is set on the lowest level that tags will be created from, but
that is true of all TSVN properties.

Should this mechanism be in addition to existing hard coded protection
of /tags/, or should it replace that? If we replace, then existing
working copies will lose that protection until they add the new property.
