IIRC one of the main problems in Copy & Paste. I believe both Scite and
Visual Studio have had issues where they "preserve" the line endings of
files, but if you paste from another source, it will continue to
"preserve" the line endings of the pasted content.

That said, you also have the "create a new file defaults to CRLF" that
has similar problems.
