I guess that, if those files are committed to by someone on a CRLF system, 
the CRLFs will be converted --- which may result in a mixed-encoding file 
if only the modified lines get converted.

But I still don't understand what the problem is of having CRLF files on 
Windows. Can someone explain why having CRLF on Windows is bad?
