The settings are client-side. Server-side, you have hooks. So the
complete solution is to set up auto-props in the clients' config
files, and install a pre-commit hook which prevents people from
committing things which do not have the correct properties on the
files, possibly referring in the error message to a web page where
the user could download a properly-configured config file.
