Actually, the answer is yes.
You can set the svn:eol-style property to 'LF' instead of 'native'. Then
Subversion will make sure that the file has LF EOL style on checkout,
and give a warning if the windows editor messed those EOL's up before

But still, I think the best option would be to set the property to
'native'. Because then, you can use whatever editor you like on the OS
you're currently working on and don't have to worry that e.g. notepad
doesn't understand LF EOLs, and if you convert the EOLs that on the
Linux system you then get messed up lines.
