Tool to update file props based on auto-props

I tried searching for this, but couldn't find any mention of tools to do
this. I realize that server-side autoprops are impossible so we need to
implement workarounds and administrate it manually on the client side.

I'd like to have a tool that can help manage this process for two use

 1. I change auto-props, and I would like to recursively descend a
repository (doing it on a WC is perfectly acceptable) and adjust
properties to match the auto-props -- but there needs to be some
intelligence or confirmations so I don't trounce any manual settings.
 2. Check to make sure that the current auto-props are being applied by
the other clients, by scanning the repo for files that don't match.
Really, this is the same as the first case but in a different context
(like a --dry-run)

I thought perhaps there would be a script to do it. It would be easy to
write a program or script to do this over a WC except that parsing the
config file is a bit non-trivial, so I thought I would see if a script
or program exists. Does anyone know of one, possibly in the contribs? I
didn't see anything immediately at
