svn supports aribtrary property values. ie you can store binary
(remainder pickles, object classification, etc.) of arbitrary size on
them. there is some question of how well some naive gui client will do
when trying to list such properties, as there is currently no notion of
metaproperties/property schema beyond the property namespace for
introspection of a property.
