The dumpfile was written by cvs2svn, which currently normalizes all
non-binary files to RNF (i.e., always LF). I will obviously have to
change this behavior.

But if it causes Subversion problems to have a file with
svn:eol-style=CRLF but contents using RNF, then I claim that "svnadmin
load" should reject such data with an error message rather than silently
accepting inconsistent data. If you agree then I will check in a
Subversion bug to that effect.
