What is the hope of an EOL extension which meets our requirements coming directly out of the hg community? If that hope is small, where does that leave us?
I'm starting to wonder what the problem really is that makes it so Python-specific. If I understood correctly, it's about a couple of files which must be stored using non-Unix line endings, right? (in the PC and PCbuild directories?)
These files are hardly modified often and by many people (and even more rarely by non-Windows people), so why not just put a verification hook on the server and let the offending committer repair his mistake manually, if it ever happens? (we can even provide a script to help repairing the EOL mistake, like Tools/reindent.py does for indentation mistakes)
