Hi Joe,

I'm so sorry for my late response again...

Hmm... Could you give us a example what you worry about?
What is the information about the data? EOL style of a file?
If so, we already provide the way: propget("svn:eol-style",

I think we should write tests to actively find bugs and
should not change tests to pass easily. I think Rubyists on
Windows normally use test mode to read/write from/to
files. So, we should use test mode in tests.

What we want to do by normalize_line_break method is
converting "\n" to the EOL character on the system. I think
this implementation will describe this reason rather than
current normalize_line_break implementation.
