Stupid question: why are the files stored into the repository with DOS
line endings?  It would appear obvious to me that as long as they are
marked as text, they should be checked in with text file endings.  And
that means \n on Unix, and \r\n on Windows.  We currently have \r\n on
Unix and \r\r\n on Windows.  That does not help anybody.
