What do you mean? Property changes can be committed in any revision -
but if you set a property to a value it's already set to it's not a
change. Note that unsetting svn:executable is done with 'svn propdel
svn:executable', not 'svn propset svn:executable 1' - the value of
svn:executable is replaces with *, only its presence matters.
