Say, I svn import a package at version 1.0 and want all files to have
svn:eol-style=native, except some files matching some patterns (say
files named configure for this example) which should have
Now, I can use auto-props to set svn:eol-style=native for all imported
files or I can set svn:eol-style=native for all files recursively after
the import. Now I have to manually set svn:eol-style=LF on all files
configure or create a script that will do it.

Then, I upgrade the package to version 1.1. The existing files will
their svn:eol-style properties, but for new files, I need to manually
the svn:eol-style properties, both for files named configure
(svn:eol-style=LF), and all other files (svn:eol-style=native), since I
cannot just set svn:eol-style=native on all files recursively this time
(I would loose my existing svn:eol-style property values).
