Currently there is no API for that at the client level. You could
write something that uses libsvn_ra to do it, it wouldn't actually be
that hard to do. Just grab a commit editor, open the file/directory
you want to modify a prop on, then modify the property, then close the
file/directory and close the editor and you're done.
