Apart from the basic semantics (text vs. binary), there's an extra that
omitting line conversion won't give you: you avoid ever having
mixed-style line endings because of editing on different platforms.
That's not very hard to fix, but I've often wished the repository could
do it for me automagically.

Besides, there's hardly any extra work involved: we'll have the
newline-scanning and -conversion logic in the code in any case.
