Hmm. I'd prefer to avoid doing that because that would result in the
properties getting set on every folder stored in my repository. These
would be displayed on the page for every folder in my Subversion web
viewer, which is just added unnecessary noise IMHO. (That's how I came
to report this problem, as in my web viewer I saw the properties set
on some folders, but not on others, so I investigated.)

I guess it wouldn't be too difficult for me to hack up a Greasemonkey
script that hides the project properties in my web viewer :)
