Is it so? I believe windows libc would write LF as CRLF to disk for
non-binary mode.
I believe python should treat LF as LF and CRLF as CRLF. It has no
business of converting the data.

I don't have a access to win32 now.
Can you tell me the out of the following code?
Open a notepad and write abc.txt with the following snipped content.
<snip>
line1
line2
</snip>

f = open('abc.txt')
print len(f.read())

If it prints '12' my theory would be:
'No need to bother about EOL styles, if the file is created and consumed
by the same platform'
else:
Not sure what to arrive at :)
