> Given that the world hasn't yet agreed on if a line ends by carriage return or carriage return-line feed I would not hold out much hope on this front (although with the death of just line feed some progress on this front as been made).

Your point's correct, but linefeed hasn't died: it's still the line-ending on Unixes. Old Macs used carriage return; Windows use carriage return line feed; Unix uses linefeed. I don't know what Mac OS X uses, because I stopped using Macs before it came out.
