Lots of SVN EOL properties are missing.
If you don't set the eol-style native where appropriate, and SVN checkin is performed from OSes with differing EOL defaults, then SVN is likely to show spurious differences. A one-line change can show up as changes to every single line, which makes following SVN history very difficult. Since one cannot limit SVN checkins to a single OS EOL-type, the SVN property is needed.
Attached file (to follow) was generated from the v1.3-rc2 tag, but presumably also applies to trunk, which is where the changes should be applied.
