This one of the cases where svn:mime-type breaks horrible. You need
"image/svg+xml" for Browser visualisation and "text/x-xml" (any "text/*") for
correct storage of the text based data. I was never happy with those mime-
types anyway, but they were/are needed when doing cross-platform development.
Some even might say that subversion was overdesigned.
Well, git has some other eol-magic, lets see if it handles things better.

Bottom line: get the webserver to deliver the mime type depending on the file
extension and change the repository mime-type to "text/x-xml".
