in reply to (OT) Fixing Line Endings

So far, four solutions have been offered:

1. Patch the kernel
2. Educate the customers
3. Modify the customer scripts
4. Symlink /usr/bin/perl\r -> /usr/bin/perl etc.

The first three are undesirable or impossible for a variety of reasons, as stated by various monks. In the absence of a better alternative, the symlink solution, while indeed 'terribly amusing', gets my vote - it's actually quite clever.
