In general, this should work, but you have to watch for the odd situation
where the newlines matter (e.g., some shell or perl script).  There are
tools that try to make intelligent conversions of newlines, but they 
can't always be trusted.  If you want to keep teTeX tightly synchronized
with MiKTeX for a small number of users this could be a reasonable thing
to do.  Another option would be to install texlive.
