It's not supported because nobody wrote the code. To do it properly
might involve storing the native-eol setting in the .svn/entries file,
I suspect subsequent commands may not work if they assume a different
setting to that used by checkout.

That only works if all access uses the same config file and it's not
good to assume that. It's a characteristic of the wc and needs to be
stored in .svn/entries.
