svn_apply_autoprops does OK, but there are a couple thigns to be aware of:

1) It'll erase any existing props on files. So, if you have props that
don't match your auto-props, and you like them...ouch.
2) It doesn't like filenames with spaces in them. I tried, a long time
ago, to tweak it to work better with this but didn't get too far.

I'm not sure if what's in the official SVN repository represents the
current latest & greatest state of the script.
