Windows doesn't have any problem reading files with any form of crlf.
The main issue we have run into thus far is that if I create a new
file in Windows, it's going to have crlf, and if I check it in that
way through this svn process, the file is then stored with crlfs,
which git does not expect.  A wide variety of problems results.
