Yes, of course, but the files in my WC have already been munged
(keywords substituted, etc). If I do this, what happens to those
[incorrect] changes when I commit?

If you want to change the properties of a file but the file in your WC has
been altered, you will have to either check out a new WC, or do "svn
propdel" directly into the repository. As for the changes that are already
in your WC, my first choice would be to extract the diffs for the changes
you want to preserve (to patch into a new WC), then throw it away.

But in principle, you should be able to patch the WC to look like a properly
checked-out WC with respect to the new properties -- for instance, you can't
check a file into the repository with a svn:eol-style parameter unless the
EOL characters are *consistent*, after which Subversion will make them all
into LF. So once you've removed svn:eol-style, you can edit all the LFs in
the file (CRLFs if you're on Windows) into the EOL characters you want.
