auto-props is used by subversion when adding and importing items.
Works for any property.

tsvn:auto-props is also used when adding and importing items, but does
not require setting up on every client. Works for any property.

When you create a child folder in a working copy TortoiseSVN
automatically copies any tsvn: properties from the parent folder.
Works only for tsvn: properties.
