yes. but fixing them once (and forever) in a single commit
should be painless.

i'd rather suggest enforcing server-side recoding on commit:
see the texinfo: cvs/administrative files/commitinfo
this leaves the question what the _preferred_ line delimiter is:
unix lf, of course? well, most unix editors i know do a significantly
better job with crlf than the windows stuff with lf, so i'm not sure.
are really that may people running NT as their preferred development
environment for mono? ugh.
