I suspect what we are dancing around is the need for some command like

	git checkout --renormalize .

which would shorten the sequence to

	git checkout --renormalize .
	git status; # Show files that will be normalized
	git commit; # Commit the result

What do you think?  Would you be interested in writing a patch for it?
("No" is as always an acceptable answer.)

Thanks,
