Sorry, I did not mean to cause inconvenience.

There are a number of files containing the standard copyright banner under
this dir - I began extending check-license.py to cover more filetypes, to
automate more of the updating of copyrights for 2005, and discovered that
the CRLF lineends were getting in the way of the detection. I figured
eol-style native made sense for text files, and was the easy solution.

If you like though, you could change them back to CRLFs, and I could add
some EOL conversion to check-license.py.

Anyway, whilst I'm talking about this directory:
mk_htmlhelp.bat doesn't have a copyright block, but all the other tools in
that direcory do - this is hardly important, but if it is intended to be the
same as the others, could you copy across the block? It would be one less
exception for check-license.py.

Max.
