That's more about versioned properties (the ones attached to versioned
files and directories), and not so much about unversioned properties
(the ones attached to revision numbers). Though I suppose a revision
property that was tens of megabytes or larger might be a problem; I
don't know -- I'm just guessing, would be interested if you have
experience with that.
