Only if you use autoprops to set svn:eol-style. For example, if you
have a binary file called foo.txt, it would have svn:eol-style set to
"native" on my setup, and probably that of many other people.

If you're worried about this, avoid autoprops, and perhaps even avoid
svn:eol-style entirely.

Apart from that it should all be clean, which is a very obvious
improvement over CVS.
