This is all fairly hypothetical - if hg grew a .hgeols file, it would
be good if it supported that cross-platform. It then may make win32text
obsolete (in particular if it provided some useful defaults).

On Unix, the functionality might be as simple as checking conformance
with the eol-style at pre-commit time.
