The "pointlessly saying "newline appended"" is one of the things that have been fixed in 1.6-rc1. From the NEWS file:

"The condition deciding when to show the message "Newline appended" has
been corrected."

And here is how it works:

$ ed /bin/ls
w foo
$ cmp /bin/ls foo

Maybe ed does not detect your /bin/ls as a binary file? If this is the case, could you send me your /bin/ls so that I can reproduce the problem?
