    svn propedit makes it easy to modify properties that have multiple values:

    $ svn propedit svn:keywords  foo.c 
        <svn will launch your favorite editor here, with a buffer open
        containing the current contents of the svn:keywords property.  You
        can add multiple values to a property easily here by entering one
        value per line.>
    Set new value for property 'svn:keywords' on 'foo.c'
