I read pep276, and I have a question.

This PEP says that line separator of RECORD file is `os.separator`.
and 'bdist-*' command will also create RECORD file.
Does it even work with the package which doesn't depend on the OS like
bdist_egg ?

I think that file format should not depend on os environment and good
choice is CRLF.
It's standard line separator as used in email headers.
