Pretty much, yes.  If it did manage to be able to read the files and
understand them, then you'll likely also end up with wonky line end
sequences on the client as well.  "p4 verify" will also likely complain
about the files not matching the stored md5 signature.

I see. So P4 wouldn't be able to un-delta my source unless I convert  
all the ,v files to the platform's native line-endings. Is that a  
good summary?
