 Automatically convert Windows/DOS line-ends to Unix, in
 the editor.

This is something that has often been requested before under many guises (mainly line endings autodetection), however, I'm not sure whether automatic dos2unix conversion is the best way to handle it.

I think it would be nice to have an IDEA-like behaviour where the line endings scheme is detected automatically and then the buffer is edited according to the detected scheme, however, one optionally can force automatic conversion to the desired scheme as well.


I'd like to use this opportunity to post an update re. what's going on at my end: basically, I've been inactive in the last couple of months (travelling, $dayjob), but I hope that my efforts in trying to find an employer who would be ready to sponsor some work on mc at least on the scale of several hours per week have now finally borne fruit and if all goes well I will again get more actively involved in mc this fall.

In the mean time, kudos to Andrew who is single-handedly doing some excellent work on mc right now...

Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
