In Emacs, if the nt/*.bat files need to be in CRLF form to allow
creating the tarball from a GNU/Linux or Unix machine, it would be
better (I think) to have a script which did the conversion just before
the tarball or some such. Having files in CVS *with* CRLF end-lines
and marked as text, not binary, is kinda... evil (not Darth
Vader-style evil, but evil nonetheless).

Also, as someone's asked, why does nt/makefile.w32-in need to be CRLF
and not the other makefile.w32-in?
