If this becomes seen as 'my' cause, I suspect it will run out of steam very quickly. I truly hope python-dev, as a community, takes some ownership of this issue
That certainly won't happen. python-dev, as a community, has never ever taken ownership of anything. It's always individuals who take ownership.
I believe ownership of a task and ownership of a cause are somewhat different.
In other words, I'm happy to take ownership of a number as tasks relating to this cause, but if the general feeling is that it is my cause rather than *our* cause, then I will probably opt-out - I'm taking these tasks on at this moment purely because I believe it *is* a common cause.
If by ownership of the cause you just mean "acceptable handling of line conversions" as being one of the criteria that must be dealt with before the switch to hg actually happens, then I think you have that agreement already.
We're not going to accept a regression in line handling from what SVN provides. Your proposed improvements to win32text (possibly in the form of a new extension based on win32text rather than a new version of win32text itself) along with server side enforcement sound like they will meet the need.
