Having some way of finding and fixing inconsistent line endings would
be useful. I had a similar case recently where I was adding a bunch of
source files from Atmel. They had conveniently added their own headers
with LF ending to every file, most of which already had CRLF endings.
The only way to find them was to see what failed to add in SVN, and
the only way to fix the failures was to edit each file individually.
