That's because Emacs Lisp isn't line-oriented at IO time, and when
parsing lines is needed, it's done with (re-search-forward "^...$"),
which automatically chops (and only when appropriate).

While I'm glad Emacs Lisp permits the style indicated by the request
for these features, I at least don't use it often enough to want them
as standard features in Emacs LIsp.
