There may be precedent - upstream already had a patch for djgpp that
stripped \r. But I also heard back from the upstream maintainer that I
probably missed the cutoff for bash 3.2, since he has already built the
release candidate, so I will have to keep it as a cygwin-local patch for
another release cycle.
