If essentially all text files need fixed line endings on Windows, then hg really needs this built in. Has it really not been used much on Windows?
Mercurial is used by e.g. Mozilla, which is not really known for poor Windows support (chances are many Firefox developers are Windows-based). I wonder whether they have written their own extension, or if they simply rely on their text editors to do the right thing.
Actually, most Firefox developers are mac based.
Mozilla isn't a great example of windows integration, they install half-a-unix-system in order to just build under windows, including msys, python 2.5, mercurial, and xemacs. See: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Windows_Build_Prerequisites
