- when mixed newlines are found in a file, can the newlines attribute be a list of those that are found, instead of "mixed"?
- shouldn't open() mode "wU" also be illegal?
Other than that, +1 (it would squelch the complaints about the email package on systems who's MTA doesn't convert to native-newlines for mail program stdin).
