Send a patch to the dev@subversion.tigris.org list. Or, if you
haven't time to produce a patch (which is fine, of course), then file
an enhancement issue about how Subversion could/should notice that
changes to executable status are a kind of local modification.

This doesn't guarantee it will get taken care of by any particular
date -- but regardless, it's the first step toward making it happen.
