Feature suggestion for property editing and recursive sets

From: Stecy <stecy.dube_at_gmail.com>

TSVN allows one to edit a property on a folder and apply this property recursively.

However, if there are already the same properties set on child folders then those are overridden by the new value.

This is a real pain especially for svn:ignore properties as I set the root of the project with some "general" values (obj, bin, etc...) but sometimes on the child I manually tweak the property value by adding a local ignore.

So far it would not be so bad, but if I re-apply the property recursively from the root then I loose my manually-tweaked property values.

I would propose to
  1) at least warn the user that there are existing values for the property in sub-child folders.
  2) perform a merging of the property values with the values already there
  3) or present the user with a dialog to edit the property of the sub-child

I thought that the upcoming 1.8 version of SVN would allow merging of inheritable properties but it appears that is not the case, unless I'm mistaken.

Thanks.
