Is there anything, that sed cant do? :-)

My reason was, that I overttook maintance of a existing java project. The
former maintainer used WinXX, while I use Linux. The first thing I did was
introducing this CVS thing, to avoid the version trouble experienced until
then.

Better think about the newbie. I think, SVN should find out, that it's a DOS
file and offer a) to convert it to unix or b) treat it as binary or c) take
it as is. Switches could be --treat-DOS-text-as-binary and
--convert-DOS-to-unix etc. The default should always be to ask the user.
