Only if creating a new file that requires unix line endings, or did I
I didn't think the suggestion was that all files must have unix line
endings, just that because some require them (e.g. shell scripts with
a shebang) that line endings should be preserved. So if you're
creating a new shell script with a shebang, it should use unix line
endings, but then presumably you'll be creating such scripts on a
unix-like OS anyway and this isn't a problem.
