Sorry, but I remain skeptical - this would mean we have someone on windows, using wordpad to edit a linux shell script, who wants to check it in without testing it, and who isn't aware of the implications of this. I guess this is possible in some shops, but I'm yet see any environments where this would be considered acceptable or actually happen.
Regardless though, I still think it would be reasonable to have that file marked as 'exact' and reject the commit. I think having an eol option *only* handling this unusual case - and no other practical reasonable cases, isn't doing anyone any favours, least of all the vast majorty of users who really only want 2 options in practice, but need to decode many more descriptions to ensure they really are getting what they want...
