I'm not sure how win32text will provide anything other than performance degradation for non-Windows developers, but if there's functionality to be had, I'm happy to mandate its use on every platform.
I see two practical outcomes of such a mandate:
* line-ending rules are enforced for local checkins, even for linux users, even though such 'accidental' inappropriate line-ending checkins should be much rarer than for windows.
* practical problems faced by Windows users, including any performance considerations, are shared by the community and therefore addressed as a community, thereby ensuring all platforms are considered as important as any other.
