I can only think of a kludge: add a .cvswrappers to each vti_cnf
directory that labels *everything* as text.  This'll work, but
it's fragile, since a user has to remember to do it every time
they add a new directory -- and I'm sure FrontPage carefully
hides the vti_cnf subdirectories from users.

On the other hand, what's the harm in checking in the vti_cnf
files as binary?  If they're only used by FrontPage:
  - they don't have CVS keywords to be expanded
  - they're only used under Windows, so who cares if they come
    out on UNIX boxes with extra ^M's?

On the other other hand, what happens if you simply don't check
in the vti_cnf files at all -- just put vti_cnf in
CVSROOT/cvsignore?  That might break FP completely ...  or it
might only break it in an acceptably minor way :-)
