I'm investigating moving to git for a large Mac OS X project. Most
edits will be done with an editor that produces files with CR as the
end-of-line character. I have no control over this.

Since git seems to understand only LFs, the diff process doesn't work,
since it sees entire files as one line. If I use autocrlf=true I still
have a problem because then, even though the stored files have
"proper" newlines, edited ones don't, and again it is impossible to
spot differences.

Is there a solution to this? Does anyone know if Bazaar and Mercurial
have this problem?

We are now using CVS, with a GUI called MacCVSClientX, which somehow
is able to handle files with either CR or LF EOL characters.
