Need to adjust based on svn:execute

Okay, here's the situation: My user's working copy is on a Linux box, where
it has to be (it's a web site and the Apache server runs on Linux). The
directory is Samba mounted out to the user's Windows machine so that she can
use TortoiseSVN to do all her Subversion activities, 'cause she's not a
command line kinda gal (and, no, this isn't a TortoiseSVN question; read on).

Now, what happens when she does the TortoiseSVN equivalent of an svn update is
that she gets a bunch of CGI scripts with no execute bits set. Which of
course isn't TortoiseSVN's fault; it has no idea that it needs to set them,
and couldn't do it through Samba anyway (at least AFAIK). But it's still a

Now, the first thing my user does whenever something doesn't work well is run
her bounce_apache script (one of the few things she does from the Linux
command line). It occurs to me that if I could just add a line (or several)
into that script to tell Subversion to update all the execute bits, I'd be
set. Unfortunately, running svn update does nothing, because AFA Subversion
is concerned, the files _are_ updated.

Is there a way I can ask Subversion to check all the files' svn:execute
property and adjust the execute bit accordingly? TIA.
