I did so for some time, too, but had to disable it, because some 
(important) people are subscribed to some CVS-has-changed notification 
lists, which send embedded CRs and NULs. The sender was complaining, that 
I'm the only person who thinks the mails are bad. (Well, I would probably 
react this way as well, if I'd get only one reply.) I bet that they have 
some newline problem (Mac vs. Unix vs. Windows), because these are huge 
projects they are working within, so someone probably checks in the files 

Since then I bounce SuspiciousCharsInHeader only and treat them as 
"infected by malware". No complains since then.
