There is of course the argument that CR-LF is network text format,
and being able to handle text mail files in that format is not
an unreasonable thing to do in addition to the native <LF> unix
text format, given that it doesn't break anything to do so.
A system with CR-only as a line terminator will transmit in CR-LF
as network text, and will end up stored as CR-LF on matt's
computer, so he'll be fine :-)
