Great! I have wondered how to do this and have been too lazy to find
out myself... :)

A comment, and I really do not want to troll here:

Why cannot Emacs handle this automatically? I mean, it already handles
LF vs CR + LF issues when I open text files encoded using either
format. Are there any drawbacks trying to "guess" more than what is
already done?
