You could probably do something like this: Make a complete checkout. Use
"svn propget -R svn:eol-style" to list all the files that have svn:eol-style
set, and the values. Save that list. Do "svn propdel -R svn:eol-style" to
remove all the eol-styles. At this point your WC is OK. Now massage that
list you made into a set of "svn propset svn:eol-style <value> <file>"
commands and execute them. In the background, your client will edit the
EOLs on the files to make them consistent with the eol-styles you set, or at
least flag them as incorrect, which you can fix by hand or script. Now
check the mess in. That should make your repository consistent.
