Yes, yes it does. 

I was wondering wht files are problematic as well - then I realized that
it isn't typically the files, but the programs on win32 that care. Notepad
hates Unix <EOL> characters. Wordpad is OK with them, as is TextPad,
VAJava, and most other things. 

All I've ever seen on *nix is an extra line displayed - and since I don't
use Win* unless I have to anymore, it's usually a non-issue.

Probably already is on locus. I'd vote for letting the CVS server handle
it if it can. cron jobs and cvs triggers can be wonderous things <grin>.

Plus it makes "nightly builds" possible as well.
