I agree with Erik that this doesn't really belong in Subversion.

However, storing information like tab width in properties is a reasonable idea.
 One suggestion is that some folks decide to get together and come up with a
standard set of properties with a common prefix (say, "text-") with common
meaning, and try to spread that standard. But it doesn't need to be part of
Subversion itself.
