Well, if I do C-x C-f and "open" a file that doesn't exist I would like to
be able to specify how it should be saved (windows or *nix style line
breaks). I am using Emacs for Windows (I compiled Emacs from source myself)
under Cygwin, and I want to save all files I create from within Emacs as
unix files instead of Windows files as it is doing now.
