Using SVNFilter to remove incorrect versioned properties.

We have a repository where files have a history where the
svn:mime-type=application/octet-stream has been set on all files. HEAD
does not have this property set.

This causes an issue with svn blame with it complaining that it cannot
diff due to the files being binary. (There was a discussion on this a
little while ago: http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-10/0297.shtml)

Ideally subversion should use the mime-type of the head of the blame
history, but as this is not the case is it possible to use SVNFilter to
remove the incorrect mime-type properties from the repository?



P.s. the svn blame --force command will work, but we are also using
tortoise SVN which does not offer this option.
