I continue to reject that supposition entirely. If there's a chance
that you will check out a working copy on one OS (say Windows) and
then use that working copy on another OS with a different line ending
style (say Linux) then you probably do *not* want line ending
conversion, because the conversion happens at checkout time, for the
OS on which you're checking out, which is not necessarily the OS on
which you're using it now. This scenario was a daily occurrence in
the company where I worked, where we had working copies on a Samba
share of a Linux server accessed from Windows desktops. Our policy
was to use Unix line endings, always, everywhere, and configure the
Windows editors to use and understand Unix line endings. YMMV.
