Re: cc-mode adds newlines

    An equally valid argument is that of the programmer who hacks through the
    night and sets off a build (which takes several hours to complete), goes
    home for some sleep, then comes back into the office the following
    afternoon.  He then finds that the build failed for lack of a final
    newline in one of the files.  Then he expostulates "FAQ!  Why couldn't
    that stupid editor have put that stupid newline in for me?".

He should use GCC--then this will never happen.

It would be useful to warn about missing final newlines in C, but
Emacs should not by default add them blindly.
