Thanks for the thorough explanation.  You're 100% correct, as always.

I'll be honest: I had a small bias when responding.
I didn't want anyone to think a "autocr" feature would be useful,
so I played the "git is really simple" angle hoping it would
put a kabosh on the idea.  That was a little silly of me.

That said, perhaps the "autocrlf" code is simple enough that it
could be easily tweaked to also handle this special case, but
I am not familiar with the code enough to say.  My gut feeling
was that it was too narrow a use case.  I guess if someone[*]
wanted to whip up a patch then it would be a different story,
but it doesn't seem to be the itch of anyone around here so far.

[*] Jens, that could be you ;-)
