I'm using VS.NET and it doesn't give me a choice for how I want to save
files. (I suspect I might be one of the offenders of this that spurred Paolo
into writing his message.)

Is it possible to put a line in commitinfo to strip out carriage returns?
That way there's no excuse for not forgetting. If not, I'll be sure to
always run Pixel's one-liner on my files before checking them in.
