Text files driving me mad

Let me request what I think would be the ultimate solution to this; even 
though this is not the improve list.

When getting a text file have the engine simply convert any combination 
of line feeds and/or carriage returns to something consistent internally 
like "return". This way any text would be opened correctly regardless of 
which platform it was made on. There might be some situations where this 
is not desirable but I bet not many.
