run-tests.py will now automatically encode control characters, so the
cateol.py hack shouldn't be needed. If I had noticed it I would have
removed it and replaced it with a simple cat.
What is the problem on windows and how do cateol.py fix it?
I think it would be great if the test suite could be run on windows, but
it is not so great if we have to add hacks everywhere in the tests. I
can imagine that we will need a general strategy for testing line
endings on windows.
