I don't think this could work, because as a normal user you for sure can't
create any SUID root scripts, which is a good thing.
I believe your best bet would be to store these additional things via
propget/propset and and create a script(which then of course needs to be run
as root) that scans a workingcopy, reads these SVN-properties and sets them
on the files or the other way round.
