I was under the impression that properties are not stored as diffs in
the repository, and in general the value of a property should be
"small". This to me still seems like it fits with the general idea
of xattrs, but the more generic multiple data streams for a single
file (e.g. the deprecated resource forks) wouldn't be nearly as well
suited to being stored in properties.

Thankfully, since resource forks are deprecated, it likely doesn't
matter. I'm guessing the most straight-forward implementation of
storing xattrs as subversion properties would suffice, at least for
the initial implementation.
