Not to accuse you, but I'm assuming the main problem is caused by
certain "don't care" applications. I think any modern editor/viewer
should be able to read in all EOL styles, even mixed. The problem
with not caring is if editing the file CREATES the mixed EOL styles
(i.e. adds a CR alone to file that already was using CRLF). I don't
care as much if the editor detects original style (preferred), but it
really should at least write using only one (perhaps the native
style).

Upon saving, any editor should decide right there whether to force to
one or the other style, NOT mixed.
