I'm wondering because there's huge projects out there not tied down to 
svn.  It seems to be a problem of our own invention.

Having managed the FreeNAS project for a year and exclusively using git 
we found ZERO use for any svn props.  We just used git and put all the 
cruft behind us.

And we were glad for it!
