Ah, but he is "sharing" a WC between OSes, and that *is* discouraged.
If you've got svn:eol-style set to native, and use TSVN to operate on
the WC via Samba on a Linux server, you're going to have DOS/Windows
line-endings on your Linux host, which would normally expect *nix line
endings. Then there's also the possible issues with permissions,
symlinks, etc.
