Yes as I said its not satisfactory but not impossible to manage

Heck Current state of art VCSes cannot even manage mismatching EOL conventions
cleanly.
And as usual they make a virtue out of the lack: 
"git stores binary data not text"

which means that opening a file created on windows on linux and saving it in 
WITHOUT a SINGLE CHANGE
can give you a 10,000 line diff!!
