In what files / modules?

If we set eol-style to 'LF' and then somebody re-checked out a module, she/he 
will always get files with LF. Otherwise, (in case when she/he had CRLF files 
before our fix has been performed) it's needed to run dos2unix on her/his 
local files.

So, as an option I can propose to run the script similar to the one I posted 
before -- at least for kdelibs and several modules we can predict will be 
used/ported on win32. Anyway, would be better to convert most modules, and 
then check in changes atomically.

As an example I am doing the fix for
