   To minimize differences from previous behaviour, it is probably
best to mimic svn more closely by changing .hgeol to either have all
the project files as native or allow fall through to the default ** =

   Another possibility is to set Visual Studio project files to CRLF
but this is less compatible with how svn has been used. The advantage
to explicit CRLF is that if you clone onto a Unix system and then
share that disk with Windows or create an archive that is expanded on
Windows (in binary mode) then you have the expected line ends.
Similarly for sharing from Windows to Unix where the main problem is
that bash can be upset by CRLF line ends since it assumes that the CR
is part of the line and if the line ends with a file name (like "cat
.profile\r") will treat the CR as part of the file name.
