I think you are confusing a couple of distinct concepts. A file's character
encoding has precious little to do with the kinds of EOL characters used in it.
The --encoding option is a hint to Subversion when transforming data in
arbitrary character encodings (such as a log message) into the UTF-8 that
Subversion forcibly uses internally to store such data. Checkouts don't use
log messages, and Subversion does not perform character transcoding on file
contents, period, so --encoding really doesn't apply here at all.
