CRLF as official line ending

Yeah, that's entirely my fault and I apologize. I don't think I realized what I had implemented when I wrote the post you quoted (I wrote that code 7 years ago and haven't touched it since). Once I looked it up and realized what I'd done, I had meant to bring it up here. But I hadn't gotten around to it yet.

If everybody else voted yes I wouldn't be angry and I'll update my software. But I do disagree with the final newline requirement. I think it's unnecessarily restrictive, and I think software authors need to accept files with or without a final newline in a user-editable text-based format. I also have somewhat unwittingly given myself a vested interest in voting against it, so vote against it I did. (Sorry! Nothing personal!)
