No. 'svnadmin load' doesn't modify the data it is given, period.

Actually, this is just a bug in cvs2svn. That program needs to notice
the "b" flag in RCS files and set the svn:mime-type to
application/x-octet-stream. This is part of Issue #1286.

Actually, that has me thinking. If a file in CVS isn't binary, aren't
its newlines treated as "native"? Might cvs2svn want to set that
property for non-binary files (of course, only after it learns to
recognize binary files)?
