One way to improve this (at least for svn:* properties on files) would be to have the Inspector display a pencil next the checkbox/menu of any property that has been changed. (Of course, things like ordering of svn:keywords could put a wrench in this...) Displaying changes to svn:ignore and svn:externals on directories is more difficult, and would probably require some new UI, perhaps a button next to Edit to view changes, which appears only if the props have been modified?
I don't have a clear-cut solution, but I would love to see an improved experience for dealing with modified properties. (So many tools suck at dealing with properties to begin with, and especially editing them, that Versions is already an improvement, but it could certainly be even better.)
Thanks, - Quinn
