The files were typically created on Windows using gvim so each original
file had CR-LF end-of-lines. I was under the (perhaps mistaken)
impression that unless you specified something to the contrary,
Subversion used native eol-style, which would be CRLF on Windows, but
would "actually store the file in the repository using normalized LF EOL
markers regardless of the operating system" (Chapter 7). You seem to
imply that one *has* to specify the svn:eol-style property initially,
rather than getting the OS default. Is that correct?
