So, that's exactly the point. propdel doesn't delete just the value --
it removes the property entirely. In fact, there is no such thing as a
Subversion property that has no value. You either both name and
(possibly empty) value, or you have neither.
I did change the text to say "propdel subcommand", though (instead of
"propdel command", which was inconsistent with other surrounding text).
