The SVN API allows to do that. But every time you do that (i.e., for
every file you change the properties) from the repository browser, a new
revision is created because it requires a commit of those changes.
So if you don't want to get too many new revisions which only do one
property change per file, you should check out a working copy, change
the properties there on all files and then commit that change in one
commit, resulting in only one new revision.
