Errors because "inconsistent line endings" on properties.

WTF? If svn is smart enough to know that a given property (most often
svn:externals) is "textual" and can be expected to have linebreaks of
a meaningful sort, why isn't it smart enough to be tolerant about the
form they come in?

Most often this error is introduced though editing the svn:externals
with eclipse under windows and committing the results with subclipse.

What's strange, is there's no way to *fix* this form the command line.

svn refuses to propget
svn refuses to propedit

The only thing I can do is propset, replacing the property. Then I
can propedit, *from memory* to correct it again.

Oddly, I can correct this problem using subclipse. It's still able to
read and edit the property.

Isn't there any way to get the command line subversion to just give
me the darn bytes stored in the property and stop trying to nanny me
about line breaks?
