RE: Re: Poll: do we really need newline conversion?

While I'm all for scenarios that don't allow .dsp/.dsw files to be
munged, and this would definitely do it. +0.5

If you're not going to do EOL conversions, then we need to ensure that
different EOL scenarios don't break use cases. (They probably won't, but
since this is such an important use case for end users, it's probably
better to be overly paranoid here.)

Possible test cases:
* Unix EOL in SVN, DOS EOL in WC, and svn update
* Unix EOL in SVN, DOS EOL in SVN, and then a server side merge occurs.
Etc...

Determine all of these edge cases, determine their desired outcome, and
test for it. :)

Doing the test case matrix would add an additional +0.5. ;)

All in favor, but wary of unintended consequences,
Bill
