There are about 43 open() calls which I've updated with the O_TEXT
option.  Having all those ifdef's seemed rather ugly (makes the code hard
to look at, expectially when they are within a few lines of each other)
so I took a more "elegent" approach, though you may want to revise it if
it doesn't meet your style requirements :)

Yep, I'm experimenting with this right now.  As it stands, tests which
print out to a file and then cat it back in (currently A04redirect and
E01options) produce a diff, but don't otherwise seem to have any
