I don't think so. As long as svn on Windows sets the executable bit 
properly and the zip program run on Windows honors it, everything should 
be fine. I haven't tested this though.

I think the properties should be changed on the trunk and then merged to 
the branch. This might be a good time to fix up all the property issues 
in DERBY-330, in addition to these.
