On general principles, I believe any program that reads text files
on *any* platforms should handle "\r\n" the same as "\n".
Not doing so is IMNSHO a bug.
However, I agree it's a low-priority bug ...

At the least, it should produce a more useful error. Perhaps the sequence "@\r" could produce a message like "Input file seems to have DOS line endings; please fix them."?
