I think most of use-cases can be solved by existing mechanism without
inventing something new:
1. auto-props
TortoiseSVN already has 'tsvn:auto-props' property [1]. Which used to
automatically set properties for added files. It would be nice if
Subversion core support this property.

2. ignores
We can add svn:global-ignores property to define global (recursive) ignore mask.

3. store-plaintext-passwords
Since most used of platforms already supports password encryption
(Windows, MacOS, KDE, GNOME) I think we can safely just change to do
not store plaintext by default.
