Please don't be upset at us because you didn't describe your
requirements or workflow fully.
You're really splitting hairs here - you're still sharing the data
from the WC to another OS. Stripping the .svn directories doesn't
change the content of what you checked out.

You have been given two suggestions of how to do this in a better way
- set eol-style to LF, or maintain 2 WCs, one for Windows and one for

You said earlier that this is a cross-platform project. How do those
tools handle CRLF on Windows if they can't handle it on Linux? Can
they handle LF on Windows (since they obviously can on Linux)?

No, your use case is uncommon at best and against how Subversion was
designed to operate at worst. If you need to share something that's
the product of a working copy with another OS (which is not advised),
then svn:eol-style=native is not your friend; there already exists the
ability to force EOL style to LF if that is what you require.
Or, yes - use a Linux SVN client on your Linux test system where you
have to work with these files, and TSVN on your Windows system.
