There is one tiny important detail.

If you're using branch.conf or whatever for controlling eol behavior
you should consider how to do with historical data. Because without
versioned properties committed with files you never know what settings
should be applied to revision tree content. Is it should be filtered as well?
If not, then why? If yes, then why?
