Ignore newline characters in shell view and Commit and related dialogs?

Please forgive me if this question has been asked before; I did perform
a search.

I realize that the *diff* viewer is capable of ignoring newline
differences, as well as white-space differences.

I'm wondering if the same filtering can be applied to the Explorer shell
view and icon overlays, as well as the Commit and related dialogs.

Basically, I hand-off code to a third party, who makes changes and then
provides the modified files, which I then have to merge into the
repository. Every time I receive the files, the line-endings have
changed, and I would like to avoid seeing every file as modified when
there are no fundamental differences.

Without this capability, I have to perform a diff on every file,
manually, to ensure that the changes are purely newlines or white-space.

Thanks for any help in this regards,
