    Let me restate: I want patch to default to native line endings on
    each platform 

The thing is, there are times when you want a patch file with non-native
line endings.  Forcing every patched file to native line endings,
ignoring whatever it was before, just seems suboptimal to me.  People
send me (on Unix) CRLF patches for .bat or .ini whatever files in
packages I maintain.

Having to remember to specify --binary seems like asking the user to do
patch's job for it -- although I can certainly understand not wanting to
add more guessing.

Anyway, you're the maintainer, I won't argue any more :).
