This is factually wrong. By default, Subversion does not care about
line endings at all (because it uses binary deltas, not text deltas as CVS used to). It only
starts to use Unix line endings when you use svn:eof-style.

What does it mean for mime-type to be "property set"? Subversion only cares
if the mime type is "text/*" or not, and otherwise mime type is irrelevant.
So, what exactly is enforced?
