updating svn:executable property

From: A.T.Hofkamp <a.t.hofkamp_at_tue.nl>

The svn:executable property of a file reflects svn's idea of the
executable-bit at a (in my case) Linux file system.

If I add a new file which has the executable bit set, the svn:executable
property is automatically added.

If I set the executable bit of an existing file, svn doesn't consider this to
be a change. Neither is the svn:executable property added.

This seems to be inconsistent behavior to me.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to check existence of the svn:executable property
and the setting of the executable bit as part of the decision whether a file
has been modified (and if they differ, change svn:executable to reflect the
state of the executable bit at the file system)?
