Text files with embedded (solitary) control-M

From: Paul Koning <pkoning_at_equallogic.com>

I have a CVS repository that has a bunch of files with embedded
control-M (\r) characters. Those aren't Mac OS 9 files; some are
Windows files and some are Unix files. In some cases the \r seems to
be meaningless, in other cases it may be important. In any case, I
don't want it converted to a newline.

I could mark all those files as binary with cvs admin, but that's not
really right, they aren't binary files but text files.

I could try to figure out how to get cvs2svn *not* to set
svn:eol-style=native on such files; that would leave the \r alone,
right? But would it then at the SVN side make the files look like
binary files?

Or I could (somehow?) figure out how to change svn:eol-style=native so
it translates \r\n and \n but leaves standalone \r alone (since there
isn't any supported platform that uses those for line endings).

Which is the right answer, and why?

Thanks,
        paul
