Mark, you are right and wrong in the same time.

Yes, it's much safer if the system will reject commit if eols has screwed.
But it safer for the system. Not for the user.

But, this is wrong to reject commit if user don't understand why.

I believe everybody there is more or less experts in using bzr,
teach editors to DTRT with eols, and many many other things.
But there are enough people in the world who either don't understand
or don't want to understand. They only want to do their f*** job and move on.
And such people will complain about rejected commits and blame VCS who reject
their commits, and so on, so on, so on.

Given this into account, I'd prefer to have optional support for non-native
variants. You don't need them? Don't use it. I don't see *the* problem.

What's the problem?
