Nope! The "-N" option is broken, and won't work as well as you wish.
It may seem to work for a short while, but then suddenly the wc will
blow up in your face.

This is a well documented bug (issue #695) that has existed for
several years:

If you, against my belief, are able to get the "-N" option to work in
any kind of seemingly reliable way, I'd be very interesting in hearing
what your typical work-flow is like.
