Here's my idea of what I'd like to see as far as text file line ending

type, allowing the setting to be applied file-by-file or through


            +W      CR/LF

            +U       LF

            +M       CR


Add a new LineEnd: option, "filetype", which responds to the new

file type modifier and could be added to an existing option as in:





Unmodified options would retain their current meanings.
