No, because only modified lines will be checked in, and all modified lines are 
converted. Again: we're talking about checking out, not checking in.

Pls read my answers.

1. Try to use GNU tools.
2. Try not to forget about converting CRLFs when moving your files to unix, 
sending patches, creating tarballs, ....
