Correct. I discussed that with Bram Moolenaar once. He refused
to add the crlf/lf conversion to the code reading the syntaxfiles
and I second that. On Cygwin all vim syntaxfiles have to be in
binarymode. The reason is that e. g. the following is a valid command:
map <F1> :wq!
If the crlf/lf conversion would take place, this command would
falsely be recognized as
map <F1> :wq!
with a CRLF eol even if the file is actually only containing LF as
