It's a matter of principle. If we do take the trouble to generate ZIP
distros, then let's do it correctly. Granted, Unix shell scripts can
have LF line endings everywhere; the reasoning is similar as for Windows
DSP files (and templates), for example. However, a Python script that's
intended to be run (and edited) on any platform should have native line
endings (I know for that Python on Unix will happily run scripts with
CRLFs in them). Otherwise we might as well throw away all the eol-style
properties in our repo, for all the good they do.
