wtfindex and dos line endings

I reported a couple of weeks ago that wtfindex choked on text mounts,
and Igor promptly fixed it (thanks, Igor!).  I just discovered that
wtfindex can't handle DOS line endings, even on text mounts.  

That is, the standard acronyms file (for example) has Unix line
endings, and wtfindex now properly processes that file on either a
binary or text mount.  However, I created a new acronyms file
yesterday with DOS line endings, and wtfindex produced a garbled
file.  Changing the file back to Unix line endings corrected the
problem.  So, I guess this could be a limitation or a bug, whichever
you choose. :)
