A viable alternative, although this only allow to /mandate/ some
settings, since a property have to be committed and this imply that
everyone's forced to use those settings within that context. As for
the API, "svn propedit" is already there :-)

OTOH, it suffers of the same problem raised by John, ie how to "spread
down" the settings so that a user that checks out just a portion of
the repository will acquire the same options.
