What clients are these?  It is the client's responsibility to convert
text files from whatever the local line ending convention is to the
canonical line-feed termination before sending them to the server.  If
that isn't happening, the clients are buggy or misconfigured.  You
aren't using some kind of shared file system and trying to commit files
from a different platform than the one you're running on, are you?

There were bugs in the -t/-f wrapper code that could cause silent loss
of information, which is *not* something you want a revision control
system to do under any circumstances, so they were disabled until
someone got around to fixing them.  That was a couple of years ago.
