Cygwin, eol-style, and --native-eol

It seems there's NO way to force svn to check out files as CRLF under
Unix or Cygwin. This just smacks me as a bizarre limitation for svn
to have at this stage of the game.

Why do you need this? In the case of Unix, you might want to check
out your source code on the Unix side and then do subsequent
operations from Windows via a samba mount, for example.

In the case of Cygwin, you might want to use the cygwin command prompt
for issuing all your svn commands (because cmd just sucks), but still
you plan to do all your editing etc with Visual Studio.

The --native-eol flag works great for svn export. Why isn't this flag
supported for svn checkout too?

Also it would be even more handy if the native eol could be set via
the config file.
