The second item is line conversion hooks. Dj Gilcrease has posted a solution which he considers a hack himself. Mark Hammond has also volunteered, but it seems some volunteer needs to be "in charge", keeping track of a proposed solution until everybody agrees that it is a good solution. It may be that two solutions are necessary: a short-term one, that operates as a hook and has limitations, and a long-term one, that improves the hook system of Mercurial to implement the proper functionality (which then might get shipped with Mercurial in a cross-platform manner).
My solution is a hack because the hooks in Mercurial need to be modified to support it properly, I would be happy to help work on this as it is a situation I run into all the time in my own projects. I can never seem to get all the developers to enable the hooks, and one of them always commits with improper line endings =P
