For permissions, if the appropriate property is set to true or false
(e.g. arx:user-read), then that permission will be set for that path.

If person A commits a change and person B gets it, the files that B
has on his hard drive should be owned by B.  However, it would be
pretty easy to modify the properties so that the arx:owner would set
the ownership properly.  Note that this could make it impossible to
check out the repository if, for example, a particular user did not
