You could set 'svn:eol-style' to 'native' on text files. That way, each file
gets the appropriate line endings for the system you do the checkout and you do
not have to worry about them.

And using CR as line endings is not very common any more, since only the old Mac
OS 9 and below used that. Mac OS X uses LF as far as I know.
