It deletes all mergeinfos, so we got a large diff now [1], Trac shows it in
siple way [2]. However, next time it will remain deleted as long as we
use `propdel`,
so no large diffs will be happening and everything will be fine.

To paraphrase one of Git design rules [3]: If SVN offers some feature, be
sure not to use it.
