Can you explain this point? What are the benefits to consistent line
endings in the repository?

What I've proposed is that files in the repository should have the line
endings that people give them. If you are in an all-Windows environment,
all the files have CRLF. If you are in an all-Unix environment, all the
files will have LF endings. In a mixed environment, it is based on first
commit.

This won't work if there are a lot of ramifications to having mixed line
endings in the repository.
