The edge-cases have to be identified. Then the correct behaviour has
to be determined. Only then can it be implemented. Regression tests
need to be written to ensure it works. I'm not sure we got past the
first stage yet...

Off the top of my head: on Windows I have a file with svn:eol-style
set to native. I add some new lines with CRLF termination. I update
the working copy to a revision without svn:eol-style. All of the
lines in the new text-base are LF, the corresponding lines in the
working copy need to get changed to LF. Do the new lines that are
local to my working copy get changed? If you think they should be
changed does your opinion change if the new text-base contains a
mixture of CRLF and LF lines?
