But that still wouldn't get the execute bits right, since the rsync would be
going from Windows to Linux.

Yep, that looks like what I was trying to figure out. I hoped there was a
slightly more compact way, but this'll do.

Quite, thank you! I eventually came up with this:

svn -R propget svn:executable | awk -F' - ' '$2 == "*" { print $1 }' | each
'chmod +x {}'

where "each" is a home-grown command I have to take a list of file names and
run a command on each one. The advantage of xargs over each is that xargs
would run chmod once, whereas each will run it once per file (actually, that's
not an advantage _all_ the time, but it probably would be here). The
advantage of each is that it correctly handles filenames with spaces, which
xargs apparently doesn't (at least on my machine).

So thanx for the nudge in the right direction.
