If someone were, ahem, 'experimental' enough (i.e. mad) they could create a
project on the repo to hold configuration data which could then be used by a
hacked client to apply that data to the whole repo - i.e. apply global
properties to it. Of course you'd have to make sure that only that hacked
client could update the repo...

Do I need to say that I'm not seriously suggesting this?
