I am not sure why we are thinking this is anything special (related to
mergeinfo). We have had many reports of people running into this
problem for all sorts of properties. SVN 1.6 requires that all
properties only have LF line endings. If you ever edited the
properties on Windows and did not normalize the line endings yourself,
it is just a given you are going to have this problem. We know that
users are regularly editing svn:mergeinfo so why should we be any more
surprised about this than we are with all of the reports for
svn:ignore, svn:externals and/or log messages?

Personally, I am not sure there was much value in suddenly making the
server enforce this restriction when our client libraries have never
done anything to help with this normalization. If anything, it seems
like we should have put this in the client and let the server still
accept the old property values.
