I need to patch the sources to do this, but it is no major problem,
I'm already testing with the patched version and it seems to be the
best solution to make no_crlf the default for Cygwin, it is also no
problem then to pull it in everytime it is needed with PERLIO=crlf.
This will save me a lot of trouble responding to the questions why
Perl writes CRLF by default and that it breaks scripts. I guess to
support the other five guys who want Perl to actually write CRLF's
will be easier;)
I'll upload an updated release soon if there are no objections.
