IMHO, things 'should' be okay without -kb too, because if line
endings are recognized properly, you should still be able to work
with the ensuing CRLF text files. But it isn't, so it's a bug, and
tcc should not be in the business of documenting workarounds for
such basic tools. Anyway, this is getting OT.

I won't be patching the documentation on the Mercurial repository.
This is an elementary and general issue that has to do with CVS;
tcc should not maintain FAQ items dealing with CVS, let alone one
specific to CVSNT. Developers who aspire to use tcc should be able
to handle this issue with no problems whatsoever, or at least be
able to troubleshoot and solve the problem on their own.
