It's not, and not likely to be, until Windows conventions change.

*but* you can take the Cygwin svn and it'll use LF as its "native" style
(or maybe nowadays whatever Cygwin in general is configured to use, I
can't recall how far those customizations went.)

Which is the sane thing to do. In the windows world, Cygwin is the one
that does everything wrong by default, making it really hard to use in
conjunction with native tools. MinGW plays much nicer there. But its
shell not handling text line endings correctly is a bug.
