And with those properties, the fsvs project violates the Subversion guidelines.
If they want to use properties, they *must not* use svn: properties:
those are reserved for Subversion.

No, they can't be.

Sorry, but TortoiseSVN is not a client for fsvs. And it will never be.
If you want an UI to show those properties, that's the job of a
separate client.
And as long as fsvs uses illegal properties, I won't even touch that project.
