Good idea.  However, some of us might mix libraries and examples 
from the new school and from the old timers.

I like:

lineEnd = 10
asciiCR = 13
asciiLF = 10

These can handle most needs.

Rev makes booing sound when CR or return are used in a script that 
is saved unless some version of legacy 'card is installed on the 
system.  And the TD has a separate page for CR and return, each, 
and each page includes a sad face in the upper right corner.

This way code can be mixed.
