One reason is that then I would need to have these other folks working
on the project to set up their auto-props. That is about as much
trouble for me to get them to do as it is for me to get them to set up
their editors with eol conventions. If I could do one successfully
then I would be able to do the other instead. I would just set up
their editors to be newline only and be done with it.

Yes, I am well aware of that process. But I was hoping to avoid it.
I think I would rather do it differently.

Thanks for your feedback anyway.
