That's great that reindent works in your environment, but that's no help in my environment.

Here's the use case: We have a software package developed in Unix and with Unix LF line endings. The code base may also contain files with CRLF line endings (I can't be certain).

I'm developing in Windows (which includes reindent.py installed by default). I'd like to use that tool to reindent the code base without munging the line endings. I can't do this without first modifying reindent.py or using another tool to convert the line endings afterword (at which point I don't know if the Windows line endings were created by reindent.py or were there natively).

If someone wants the line endings normalized on their code base, they should use another tool (or possibly an option to reindent.py), but there's definitely a case for using reindent.py without altering the line endings.
