Firsing svn:eol-style=native on files with "binary" mime types?

From: Aleksey Nogin <aleksey_at_nogin.org>

I have a number of files that should use native eols, but should not be
merged by subversion. It turns out that if I _first_ mark these files
with a "non-text" mime-type, then subversion refuses to accept
eol-style=native on them, complaining:

svn: File 'foo' has binary mime type property

Even --force does not help convince subversion that I know what I am
doing here. So far, the only way to get around it that I've found is to
remove the svn:mime-type, add svn:eol-style, and then put svn:mime-type
back in, which is quite annoying.

Is there a better way? Should this be considered a bug? Is there an
issue filed on this? Thanks!
