Well originally I was thinking that it would be a very reasonable
tradeoff to disable revprop editing on packed revisions. I think the
majority of times this is used is to fix a log message, and that
usually happens soon after the commit. It then occurred to me there
are tools like svnsync and svk that use revprops. I think they
usually use revision 0, so that would be a pretty minor special case.
