Every time you bring this up I have to point out that what you're talking about applies only when a file's svn:eol-style property is set to "native". It does not apply when svn:eol-style is set to another value, such as "LF" or "CRLF", nor does it apply if svn:eol-style is not set.
I would strongly advise users to set svn:eol-style of their text files to LF or CRLF as appropriate, to avoid the problem of getting inconsistent line endings in the file due to using different editors with different settings or on different platforms. Using svn:eol-style native is also fine, so long as you understand that working copies should not be shared among operating systems with different line ending styles.
Case conflicts are an issue you'll want to avoid if you have Mac users too, since the default Mac filesystem is case-insensitive too, just like on Windows.
