That is exactly what -kL does.  It creates files with unix line endings 
on all platforms (and -kD for DOS, -kM for Mac).

--lf was never documented, was never intended to be used and could 
easily corrupt repositories.  The only reason it's still there is WinCVS 
still likes to have it around.  Once that dependency is gone the option 
will disappear completely.
