By suppressing the svn:eol-style propery for all application/* files.

The problem today is that setting the correct MIME type for xml (and other)
files prevents a correct handling of EOL markers. This may be solved by
creating a more complete MIME list like you proposed. I just wasn't sure if
the SVN developers really want to update that list all the time. Anyways,
your proposal of doing it like that would be fine as long as SVN doesn't
exhibit some default behaviour for unknown MIME types.
