Yes -- either of the two other valid settings for svn:eol-style: LF
or CRLF, which will cause the end-of-line style to be what you would
expect for those values. When I used to have that kind of development
setup (working copy checked out on Linux, accessed from a Windows
machine via Samba) we standardized on setting svn:eol-style to LF and
configuring the Windows text editor to know how to deal with Unix
line endings. Or you could go with CRLF and teach your Unix tools how
to deal with Windows line endings.
