OK, yeah, I think I meant "after", i.e. ... CR <RESET> LF, in order
to force CR to be separated from LF.

I have no strong opinions, other than that "LF in repository, CRLF
in working tree" would make the issue go away (when it is solved for
EOL=LF like the above, that is).

If "LF in repository, CRLF in working tree" is done, there would not
be ^M at the end of the line, not just for removed lines, but also
for added lines, no?
