Another problem is that Windows caches those file properties. This is
good for performance, but won't work for Subversion since the file
itself doesn't have to change to mark a file as modified in svn (e.g.,
if an svn property changes on a file, the file itself isn't even touched
- those changes happen inside the .svn folder). And that's when the
Windows cache wouldn't notice that it is out of date.
