Double ???

Those properties get set automatically when I create new files. I can see  
them on my system and svn status reports nothing fishy:

fuchsia:~ charlieclark$ cd  
fuchsia:browser charlieclark$ svn status utils.py
fuchsia:browser charlieclark$

Doesn't seem to matter whether I delete and add them again.

Me, too.

Why do you think it should be kept invisible? To avoid clutter? Or  
minimise the effect on the existing layout?

Right. I'll ignore this for the view and remove it from the PythonScript.  
Was struggling with an elegant way of getting a "object/localroles" action  
for a member's home folder anyway!
