I'd like this too but for a different use case: we do development on
windows and deployment on solaris. Normally, the build (and thus
checkout) is done on the same environment as the deployment and so
native line-endings are not a problem. However, for our test
environments, we regularly build on windows and deploy to Solaris for
testing. We use java and I've never had a problem with this
build/deploy dichotomy in several years, except for some problems
caused by line endings being incorrect due to the native setting.

Why don't I just switch to eol-style LF? Well, for the newbie
developers (and there are a lot of them in the java world) native is
easier. But I'd like the developers that understand the difference to
be able to force the style. Plus, the fact that changing the line
endings really messes up merges is a factor too.

So, if you decide to file an issue and need a buddy...
