Unless you also want to handle systems which output just '\r' (e.g. MacOS
uses \r internally as a record terminator.)

I happen to have a table of termios flgs open on my desk (I must have done
something pretty evil in my previous life), and I see options to map CR to
NL, map NL to CR, and ignore CR completely.  Another data point: method
readLine of Java class java/io/BufferedReader is defined to accept
'\n', '\r', or '\r\n' (but not the '\n\r' mutant).
