I'm sorry, but what you suggest is outside the scope of Subversion.
Subversion does not interpret the contents of text files. The
end-of-line conversion only touches newline characteds, which I believe
are encoded the same way in all three encodings you mention.

So, the "charset-garbled" problem is not, I believe caused by
Subversion, but by the native tools on the various systems. The same
problem would exist even if Subversion wasn't used; for example, if you
stored files from Windows on a Samba share, and then used the same files
on Linux.
