There is also a crlf.py script distributed with Python (in the scripts
folder) that removes CR.

Some version control systems will handle this for you - Subversion,
Mercurial and git, at least - so you could use a VCS to transfer the
files and convert the line endings. This would also give the benefit
of having the files in the VCS.
