It seems to me that
        svn --recursive propset svn:ignore xyz

is basically just syntactic sugar for manually going through issuing
        svn propset svn:ignore xyz

on every node of the directory structure, It is syntactic sugar in the
sense that the end product in either case would be the same. There is
no "recursive" data attribute in a project's svn:ignore tree.

Which leads me to think that a one-time shell script or python script or
whatever might be written to walk the directory tree, look for all the
executable files and manually add them to that directory's svn:ignore list.
