Why? It is the pager's duty to highlight CR, IMO. If it doesn't, but
the user wants to see them, then they are using the wrong pager or the
wrong pager settings.
AFAIU Junios explanation it's not the pagers fault.

Then Junio and I are in disagreement. IMO, Git does not have to be more clever than the pager when it comes to presentation of text.

As far as I am concerned, I do not have any of my files marked as
eol=crlf, but I do *not* want to see ^M in the pager. I.e., having git
insert <RESET> between CR and LF would do the wrong thing for me.

But doing the same thing in added lines is doing the right thing for you ?

Yes, I think so. As long as I'm not telling Git that my files are CRLF when they actual are, then the CR before LF is a whitespace error. Nevertheless, I do *NOT* want Git to outwit my pager by inserting <RESET> between CR and LF all the time so that it is forced to treat the lone CR like a control character that is to be made visible.

Or are you suggesting to fix the behavior of added lines instead ?
In any case, inconsistent behavior is not what we want.

I'm suggesting that users who knowingly store CRLF files in the database, but do not want to see ^M in added lines have to use whitespace=cr-at-eol and that's all. I do not see inconsistency.
