But how do you expect Subversion to know (on linux) that it should use
CRLF line endings, if you don't tell it to?

My point being: we can fix the problem when you tell Subversion to use
CRLF, but if you don't, we can't do anything but use the default...

Subversion doesn't guess...

Sorry, but we can't have a version control system trying to second
guess what users mean to do. The Subversion developers work the same
way: writing a program which does well defined things on well defined
