Ok, that makes sense.

In this case, the issue is whether nt/makefile-w32-in and similar
files should have DOS or Unix line endings.

There are no comments about line endings in the file.

Perhaps it should say:

#  Using DOS line endings for Emacs 22. We've flipflopped on this
#  several times; let's document why we make the next change.
