'svn revert' just copies the text-base on top of the working file.
But the whole point here is that the text-bases are *wrong*. They're
wrong in the sense that the text-bases no longer are identical to
what's in the repository, which is our cardinal rule.

  1. Certain files with eol-style "native" had text-bases with CRLF,
      which is always wrong. "native" eol-style always means LF style
      in the repository (and text-base).

  2. Certain files with eol-style "CRLF" had text-bases as LF, which
      is equally wrong.

So 'svn revert' only makes the problem worse. It means that if you
commit a change to those particular files, the diff sent to the
repository will likely be completely bogus.
