There is a really, really, remote possibility that a \r means something
different than a \n in a text file that is supposed to have unix-style
line endings (they once were used to do line overstrikes to make bold
text). But its rare enough that the right thing to do to anything
designated as a text file would be to convert any of \r, \r\n, or \n to
the appropriate line ending for target platform. And complain to
whatever committee forgot to create the equivalent of a MIME tag for
this property decades ago so we wouldn't still be guessing.
