Bulk update of a property

Hi there,


Does anyone know of an easy way to bulk update a property on lots of documents?


The situation I have is that a new property has been added to our content model. We need to set the default value of all existing content that has been affected by this update. 


Normally I would write a bit of JS to find all the documents, then iterate through each setting the property.


But here's the catch...the system has quite a lot of folder rules and behaviour policy extensions associated to my content types. If I just run my JS, it will trigger these rules and behaviour policies. I need a way of updating the property without any of this happening.


Any ideas?
