We (Chromium) don't really have .sln or .vcproj files checked in any
longer, but when we did, I think they were set to "native".  I suppose
this made it easier to edit them on platforms with editors that don't
expect CRLFs.  Still, I would have chosen CRLF to make it easier to
carry diffs, whole files, and even entire tarballs between platforms.

Obviously, LF would be out because MSVS is going to write CRLFs in
.sln and .vcproj files regardless of what you tell Subversion.
