I vote for:

"blatting all the newlines in the file into the native format"

then you're really fixing the problem, not putting it off.

Funny, I'm right in the middle of dealing with eol issues on a unrelated 
SVN project -- I'd really be much happier if SVN just did what CVS did 
-- this is far more painful. It's just not that hard to go back and fix 
it if you accidentally put a binary file in as text. Oh well.
