This is not a text mode mount problem.  This is a problem of downloading
files in text mode, and then transferring them over to a binary mount
(without appropriate conversion), so you get CRLF files on binary mounts.
Which is a peculiar (and, IIUC, unsupported) mode of operation.  FWIW, I
agree with CGF - this doesn't merit documenting.  It's in the archives,
