Wrong. All files are stored in the same way and their bytes are not changed
unless a specific change is requested on the client side (e.g. by setting
"svn:eol-style" or "svn:keywords").

further hoping that one day it will be possible to configure it on the server
too. Please read about configuration in the book.
