[PATCH] Suggested change to svnadmin setrevprop summary

As I understand it the command really sets a (named) property on a  
revision, not the "property name" on a revision. (The first line of  
the description uses the same phrasing as the old refpurpose, but the  
<replaceable> markup makes all the difference in interpretation!)

I considered text like "Set a named property on a revision" but  
decided that that could cause confusion to a new reader about whether  
Subversion has both named and unnamed properties --- the command  
description makes it clear that properties do, in fact, have names.
