[Wishlist] add option to cat to force final newline

cat of a file without a '\n' as the last character results in the last
line not shown in most shells (as it's overwritten with the shell
prompt).  I wonder if a patch for an option like --force-newline or so
would be accepted, which would print a final newline if the last
character is not one.  Or is there already a way to get that behavior?
