Well, looks like \n is not a single character on Windows.  Does the

Actually, we get into pretty much the opposite problem as expected, I
think.  Unix file endings will not get recognized by \n in Perl.  This
is really a bunch of crummy junk if I ever saw it.  I have no idea how
to deal with this: a distribution tarball will obviously not
distinguish between binary and non-binary files and we seemingly need
DOS line endings after all.

And I really do not want to think about what we have to expect on
