Hi all!

I think that it isn't duty of SAMBA to convert files from one format to 
another. Such way someone can say: "I have no MS word on my machine, let's 
convert MS Word files into PDF on the fly!"
I think that *applications* must take care about file formats conversion 
Reason: conversion of file is up once and it doesn't require a lot of time 
and resources as if it might be required when we try to do it via SAMBA wich 
is processing a lot of request from users and servicing them at that time.
Thus, IMHO, 'CRLF/LF conversion' is offtopic here.
