Eeek! That's not right! Suppose we merge an old change where neither
source has svn:eol-style into a working copy with svn:eol-style set to
native. In that case we probably want it all done using native.

How about this: if the merge changes the svn:eol-style then we use the
new style (that of the new merge source) for all the files. If the
merge doesn't change the svn:eol-style then we use the working copy
svn:eol-style for all files.

Or how about we abandon eol-conversion as a bad idea?
