* because they contain text

* because 'patch' should always 'just work'

* because other platform maintainers may add/delete sources

* because .dsp/.dsw are only the 'obvious' problem.  The less
  obvious issue is that the compiler gets entirely twisted about
  what 'line number' of the sources corresponds to a given
  symbol, and the debugging support becomes worthless with \n
  terminated sources.

apr/lineends.pl exists for this purpose.  Sadly, it can and will
corrupt svn tree files if you use it on a checkout, rather than
on a tarball.  I'll commit the patch shortly.
