Actually what happens in (2) is that a CRLF at the end of the line
becomes LF. (How to tell? Look at svn_hash_write2() for the
serialisation format description, then count the bytes within the field.
The second \r is byte 48 in a 49-byte field. Byte 49 is a \n.)

Whatever is consistent with how we handle \r elsewhere --- eg, in
svnsync, 'svnadmin dump' (which I think dumps \r literally), and
'svnrdump dump'.

We might just need to reuse copy-bad-line-endings.expected.dump --- but
you're correct that that is not a priori obvious.
