Yes, they are, but it occurs to me that this is not very helpful -- how
much work would it be to fix msgmerge, automake, bash, and awk (and
others) to handle CRLFs properly? Between 10 and 50 hours each, I should
think, which is generally completely out of the question. Most of that
time is simply getting set up to make changes to the code -- there's
likely to be a 100-500% overhead dealing with small issues like this.
I'm a great fan of open-source, but just being able to look at the
source doesn't fix every inefficiency and flaw automatically.

Fortunately, I suspect using eol-style=LF would do the job, or keeping
separate WCs.

Apologies for the OT rant, all.
