IMHO that solution is needlesly complicated -- it isn't necessary at
all.

Just open the file with DOS line endings (CR/LF) -- Emacs will recognize
that and display "(DOS)" in the mode-line.  Now, if you want to save it
with Unix line endings do `C-x RET f iso-latin-1-unix'.

gnu.emacs.help separately.  Cross post instead.]
