The way the files are stored in SVN repository is the implementation 
detail of SVN, and does not depend on committer will. Please, read the 
chapter in svn guide about properties (metadata) and in particular about 
"svn:eol-style=native" to understand the way subversion handles text 
files. The practices from CSV are useless here, because the architecture 
of CSV is different than SVN.
