I don't understand. Wouldn't a -unix coding force it to be saved with
Unix EOL convention?

Well, I do "M-x replace-string ^M^J <RET> ^J <RET>", and the savehist
file contains 0x0D 0x0A and 0x0D 0x0D 0x0A.

We are miscommunicating somehow. The value of `savehist-coding-system'
is used to write the file, and is also written in the coding: cookie.
When I propose to use a -unix variant to write the file, I of course
mean to also write it in the cookie.
