Whether or not it works on the client settings reliably, it's breaking
these developer's workflow for even accidentally enabled use of
auto-props to happen. I'm afraid their only real option is the
pre-commit hook to prevent poisoning the data, because they don't
necessarily have control of the client configurations. The risk of
that pre-commit hook is that it forbids binary xml's at all, which
does not seem such a big loss in this case.

Mind you, this is the sort of thing that a README at the top of the
"trunk" is useful for, to let users know of workflow problems in
