You've got hold of the wrong end of the stick.  It is the responsibility
of the CVS client to convert between the host's line ending conventions
and the CVS client/server protocol's convention.  If you have clients
that do not do that, reconfigure them correctly.  If that's not
possible, get rid of them -- there's no sense struggling with a
defective client when there are lots of correct ones to choose from.
