Well, I understand what you mean.
For the svn:eol-style=native, I don't know what would be the behavior, we do not use svn:eol-style, we prefer that Subversion leaves the files as they are.

In general Subversion works well with a cross-platform working copy (except sometime some permission problems in the .svn directories on unix side) so I've never wondered what was the official policy about this.

So, as I understand it's not supported. Could it be supported in a future release ?
