Do we anticipate (or even allow/endorse) that end users will edit
this file with a random editor?  And, to a lessor degree, the same
question on the reading side.  Do we encourage users to directly
read from this file to learn something about their repository?

If we are the only tool that writes into this file, and if we are
the only tool to be used to read (and use) the contents of this
file, I do not see the need to cater to LF vs CRLF line endings.
