I found read-line working somewhat unexpected on network streams

empty lines in between the line feed.

Anybody who objects this change, which understands any of:
#\newline #\return #\return #\newline
#\return as line delimiter. Sequences, though, should result in empty lines.

There is one little problem, though: when reading data
interactively, and we have normal (1-byte) line-terminators,
then your solution will have to read the next line from the user,
before it can process the current line.
I propose to add an optional flag to `read-line' that
states wether extra line-terminators should be consumed
or not (defaulting to not).
