You don't do this. Read-only property for versioned files is reserved for a
specific meaning to Subversion, that is, to represent locked items. There's
really no valid reason that I can think of to break this meaning through
some form of inconsistency. Having said that, I still see no reason why
having the cleanup feature do what I previously explained be a bad idea.

Cleanup, like most things, is probably done by the Subversion

Good point. I had forgotten about this small fact. I've posted a similar
inquiry on the SVN mailing list. Thanks.
