That won't help you much.
But you could try the svn command line client (either from
open.collab.net, or from
http://nightlybuilds.tortoisesvn.net/latest/win32/). If you use the one
from our nightly build server, you have to copy it into the TSVN
installation path for it to work.

Then use
svn propdel propertyname url --revprop -r XXX
