That's an option, and a good one: just say no to tools that care too
much about EOL. I work on Windows, and almost all of the tools I use
(all of them that I use more frequently than once a month) handle CRLF
or LF fine. If I came upon a tool that didn't, I'd consider it a flaw
in the tool.

There are plenty of flawed tools out there, but just don't use them.

If you tell svn to treat all files as binary, you'll end up with a lot
less tears in the end.
