I don't think that this text of
mine should be treated as single
line. Don't you think so too? ;)

Seriously: firstly, there is no such thing as a '^M' character, this is just a
shortcut for (I guess) a linebreak and is used by some editors to mark
characters that are not printable, whitespace or control characters. You need
to find out what this actually is, i.e. which byte or byte sequence it

Anyway, for Subversion it simply is a linebreak and trying to guess from
the surroundings whether you (the user) really meant a linebreak or just
a linebreak-but-not-really is futile.

Just wondering: isn't there a syntax that allows you to specify a newline in
the sed script, e.g. like using '\n' in C, but without a literal newline?
