Note that you don't always want "native" (at least I think you don't). For
example, in Chromium we've ended up marking .cc/.h files, as well as .sh
files, as LF. .sln/.vcproj are CRLF (although I'm less sure what the issue
there is... it seems like "native" had some subtle issue or other).
I tend to feel like eol-style is unilaterally good except for any hassle it
causes developers to go through (hence the importance of auto-props). Even
having it on some files doesn't seem like a bad thing to me; I certainly
wouldn't go through the tree and remove it from things. (In fact, removing
it from some of the scripts in WebKitTools would break my checkout.)
