No idea. I would think that if handling 0x0D as an `invalid_input_char' hasn't afected the ability of OSX users to process their files it wouldn't hurt to use in all the preprocessors.

OSX is a little schizophrenic w.r.t. line endings these days. Applications at the Cocoa/Aqua level tend to use 0x0d for line endings, while everything at the command-line level (groff) and X11 apps use 0x0a.

Vim can handle most of the back&forth issues, and piping through "tr" takes care of the rest.
