I don't think so, but I might be wrong.

I would not like, as a user, that the revision control system changes
the content of the files I submit (commit) with some magic rules I
simply ignore.

I found easier to define the auto-properties file and to ask all the
users entering the project to download and install the file.

From my perspective (IMVHO), I find safer to inform and train the
users rather than to rely on some magic tool that could take care of
their mis-uses. Most of the time, this kind of magic tool eventually
takes invalid decisions which are far harder to fix. No tool can
prevent from all the mistakes a user can make ;-)

Cheers,
Manu
