For the record, as a Mac user for about twenty years now, I do *not* 
want \r honored.  Its existence in any files on my system at this point 
is a bug.  Because no OS X editor defaults to \r, we are only 
inconveniencing those who have deliberately set their editors to use 
Classic-style line endings, in which case, pardon me, but they kind of 
deserve what they get.
