Where I am, while our main development platform is Windows, we use a
code analysis tool called Polyspace, which runs on Linux. Sometimes we
make small changes to our source directly on the Polyspace machine,
then pull those changes back to our Windows workstations.
Unfortunately, we are not allowed admin priviledges on that machine,
so we can't install SVN on it (nor are the PC support people willing
to do so). This means we often get files with inconsistent newlines.

Fortunately, we are able to configure our IDE to automatically fix the newlines.
