Ok, I think we could use 'os.linesep' [1] for constructing the test
strings, and open all files in binary mode. But then we need a new
binary version of svn.append_file, and at the end we will be doing the
same thing what Python is doing for us at the moment. So is it worth
of it? If we like to write a test case where we mix keyword
expansions and line-endings, then yes, but for the _current_ test case
it should not bring any extra value.
