Subversion supports binary property values. The only way to set or
read those properties is to load from a file or save to a file. That
is what the button is for, not for saving the list of properties.

There may be scope for a feature request here though. I often want to
load bugtraq properties on new projects, and the only way to copy from
another project which already has them is to open a properties dialog
for both projects and copy and paste them one at a time. A way of
saving a set of property names and values in a file would be useful,
maybe in the format used in .svn/prop-base which handles text and
binary properties.
