If I recall my line termination sequences correctly, both of these are
from the age of teletypes, and the \n would (and still does) move the
cursor down one line (but retain its position in character #'s) and the \r
will actually return the cursor to the begining of the line.

One without the other is messy :)

Corrections welcome.
