I wonder if we really need that. On Windows, the commonly used
programming editors (UltraEdit, SlickEdit, Visual Studio, Emacs,
YouNameIt) all handle files with unix EOL correctly, and our .dsp
generator makes sure the line endings in the project files are correct.
I always build release binaries from the unixish release tarball. We
don't _have_ to create another (identical) package which differs only in
line endings, and it's a nuisance.

APR needs this because they keep the .dsp's in the tree and refuse to
disable newline conversion in CVS; so does httpd. We don't.
