Actually if you take a look at older versions of Circle (2.20 and perhaps
some of the earlier betas of 3.0), or any version of std. Diku, you'll see
everything is \n\r.  For 3.0 everything was painstakingly switched over
to \r\n so that non-unix clients would be happy and because CRLF is the
standard (no one uses LFCR!).

(Actually, sed did most of the work, but a lot of it had to be done manually).
