Just to clarify the issue here:

You're using svn: properties which you must not. The docs for
Subversion clearly state that svn: properties are reserved for the
Subversion project alone.
The issue here is not so much you using those properties but you
insisting that you have the right to do so and not change the
properties to something else.

You may have noticed that TSVN 1.4.x has problems on Vista. That's
because I too relied on undocumented features without realizing it -
after all, it worked on Win2k and later, it only broke once Vista came
out. But I didn't insist that I was right, instead, I fixed my bugs
and admitted that I did something wrong. Sure, one feature that was
broken on Vista wasn't so much a mistake of mine but the documentation
for that Windows API was misleading. I reported the problem to MS, and
they explained how the API was really meant to be used - but they too
admitted that the docs were not really clear and could be
misinterpreted the way I did, they admitted it and fixed the docs -
and I fixed the bug in TSVN.

You however keep insisting that you have the right to use undocumented
features or do whatever you like with other apps and libraries as long
as your app works. *That's* the problem here. If you would just admit
that you did something you shouldn't have and fix it, all would be
