Since win eolns are annoying ;-)
In addition win eolns can confuse some tools I depend on.
Well, I know that to develop tools which are platform dependent is
not very handy, but there is nothing I can change about it...
Wish I was a manager... ;-)

Maybe in your sweet bug-free world...
When I see win eolns in $CVSROOT/files.c,v it mihgt be buggy cvs version:
cvs -v
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11 (client/server)
or bad cvs administrator (I inhereted the repository as is)
or bad client
or st. else
Nevertheless, to keep the repository as clean as possible is a part
of my job now.
