The committer must also ensure that they have not already set up
Subversion auto-props definitions which conflict with these
guidelines, or must remember to undo what their auto-props did before
committing. For example, I cannot imagine anyone deliberately setting
svn:eol-style on PNG images before committing, but I can very well
imagine someone inadvertently configuring an auto-props rule which
sets svn:eol-style on all files (à la "* = svn:eol-style=native").
