Subject: hybrid text/binary mount

Hey, I've got an idea.  How about a mount mode where files opened for
reading do CR/LF conversion *if* they look like text files (i.e. no
binary characters, all CR/LF are part of CR/LF pair), and files open
for writing always write files in binary mode.

Of course, programs that specify text or binary would get what they
wanted.
