Agree, it's a totally different topic but I like to have the line endings type displayed somewhere in the status bar (along the encoding).
And for the record even if nobody ask me, I really dislike the line ending symbol everywhere, it's only useless noise.
Just active trim_trailing_white_space_on_save and you never have to think about it.
For the line ending type information currently missing, this is my plugin:
def DisplayEncoding(view, encoding="", line_endings=""):
view.set_status('encoding', "%s %s]" % ((encoding if encoding else view.encoding()), (line_endings if line_endings else view.line_endings())))
def on_load(self, view):
def on_post_save(self, view):
