It sounds like many different people have many different requirements around this.
Maybe I missed some of the thread, but has anyone considered using a trigger to handle this kinda thing?
People seem to know exactly which files they want with which line ending.
I know some apps (Visual Studio) are pretty picky about the line endings on its files.
The trigger would likely work the same as modifications to the typemap.
Just a thought...

Here's my idea of what I'd like to see as far as text file line ending
handling in Perforce. Thought I'd toss this out for comment.
Introduce a file type modifier which coerces a file into the desired
type, allowing the setting to be applied file-by-file or through
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.
