That's one request for each listed file. Well, at least one request.
The svn proplist command only returns the name of the property.
Only if '-v' is specified, it will read the value of each property. And
that will take another round-trip to the server for every property.

There are limits for command line parameters. But that's not the issue
here (you can write the params to a temp file and just pass the path to
that tempfile instead).
The problem are the many round-trips to the repository which are
required to get (and show) the properties.
It won't be a big problem for repositories on the same LAN, but for
repos hosted somewhere else, this would render the repobrowser useless.
