Dan, you've got me on the .java files, but you'll never convince me
that the default settings for .bat and .sh files are a good idea.  Nor
for .txt, for that matter.  This is all very well for some English readme
files, but if you work with text as data, and exotic code pages, you don't
want your data repository to go in and manipulate your data.  All hell
breaks loose, I've been there.

Anyway, as I said, if your hypothetical developer becomes real, we
can work this out I'm sure.
