FWIW, I suggested a hook because you could implement that in about
5 minutes, whereas doing a C code change would take at least 10 times
that (and several weeks if you have to wait for it to appear in a 1.7.x
release that you can install at $WORK). I won't object to C code
verifying the svn:eol-style invariant.
