Exactly - it's not CVS's job to fix up problems introduced by other

Text editors should be configured to deliver the correct line-ending for the
file system they are running on. On native Windows, this means CR followed
by LF. On UNIX, this meas LF alone. On hybrid platforms, such as Cygwin
under Windows or (I think) certain NFS mounts, it depends how the
environment is set up - Cygwin can be configured to use either.
