I agree with this, but it doesn't solve the problem when a "text" file
is already open in binary mode, or when someone treats a Windows text
file as a Unix text file and redundantly translates it to a Windows
text file (so that \r\r\n that decodes as \r\n). The question is
whether to try to avoid those problems.
