Since, according to Chris Little, Mac users have no problems with
CR/LF or LF line endings, it doesn't seem too unreasonable to ban
CR line endings. Would it make sense to have a script that converts
all files to CR/LF or LF only, and run it right before assembling the
release distribution? The script could just scan files, and when it
read a CR without a following LF, it could add it. LF only files don't
seem to be a problem.
