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'
