Set svn:eol-style to native on all text files. The autoprops in
$HOME/.subversion/config are just a convenience to set a property when
a file is added - once it's in the repo they are irrelevant. If a new
text file is added without svn:eol-style, you can set svn:eol-style
later.

See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch07s02.html#svn-ch-7-sect-2.3.5
for more details on svn:eol-style.
