Given that my preference is to use Unix-style EOL for "text" files on Windows, as every text editor I use (barring notepad!) understands LF format, it seems to me that this proposal also means that the hook would be optional for me. That suits me fine - I'd prefer to avoid having hooks that are required for Python checkouts, as that means I have to remember to configure them on each clone (IIUC).
Yeah, this may also be what's making it harder for me to understand the issues. I am actually a Windows user, although I do most of my development on Linux servers through PuTTY. I just always make sure I use editors that respect the file's line endings, and so for those things where I've used hg to version code on Windows (for example, when testing a Firefox extension) and when my colleague who does edit his code inside Windows, I've just used editors that deal with line endings. Typically, in my case, that was either Notepad2 (an awesomely light-weight Notepad replacement) or Komodo (Edit). That solved all of my issues, so I haven't had a need for win32text so far.
