Yes it is an option -- "TAR file smart CR/LF conversion"
(and yes I hope I will remember to come and check this if I
ever meet a problem with a some rare binary format)

The .zip file format contains binary/text information bit, so I actually hoped

So in order to make this "just work" for Windows users the zip file
would need to be done using files which have windows style line-endings.
