But that only works for files presently in the repository, You can set
the property automatically on the client side when files are added
using auto-props, but that's a per-client setting and you can't force
that upon your users from the server. Which means you'll also need to
install a pre-commit hook which rejects any commit with an Autocad
file which doesn't have this property set.
