so this behavior is kind of consistent with other programs. I think
files that are executable are automatically given this property when
added - except when added by Windows clients (otherwise everything would
have that property).

If for whatever reason you can see yourself adding files with TSVN but
at a later date checking them out in Cygwin (in a nightly build script
for instance) its useful to have an autoprop set to ensure .exe .bat
.dll etc get this property added (it can take ages to work out that the
reason your compiler doesn't work is because one of its dlls is non
