"svnlook diff -t $TXN" shows me that the properties were changed, but
not which property.

One of the things I'd like to do is not only give permissions on the
files (who can read or update files, and who can add new files to
directories), but also on the properties (who can add, delete, or
modify particular properties). This would be important if we want to
use properties for other types of metadata (like defect number, who
gets mail if a file was changed, etc.) I wouldn't want users to modify
a property that I am using strictly for CM purposes.
