Yes, I know.

I did not know about the script.

The problem is that the commit e-mail sometimes flags the whole file
as having been changed, even if the only change is the eol setting.
In the past I've used svn diff locally before committing eol fixes,
and the contents part of the diff does not always agree with what the
commit message shows.
There have been occasions when local diff shows content change, but
commit message does not, and vice-versa.
