I hadn't yet decided whether to put that into this section or into the
reference matter.  Since I (intentionally) didn't go into details on the
relevant subcommands (put, propset[f], propdel), it seemed odd to mention
the race condition here.  But then again, the race is the very reason why
'svn' doesn't offer this functionality itself, so maybe it bears spelling
out here and repeating in the reference chapter.  What do you think?
