Well it's a one-way conversion, it seems.

I have files with Unix style newlines (LF) in a Unix based CVS repository.
If a Windows user wants to edit these files, the newlines will be converted
to DOS style (CR+LF) upon checkout when using cvsnt. When the user is done
editing the file and goes to commit, it will be committed as-is, screwing up
the diffs.

Is this not a legitimate reason to use -kb?
