That's a client-side feature.
But if you have an 1.8 server, that helps too:
The properties are inherited, i.e. a property set on the root folder is
also 'set' on all folders below.
So if you set such a property on the repository root, it affects all
checkouts, not just trunk but all branches as well. Of course, you
usually don't have root checked out but a subfolder like trunk. In that
case, svn has to contact the server and read the properties on root to
know which ones to inherit. With an 1.8 server, that's done a little bit
faster - but I guess most users won't even notice the difference.
