Ezio Melotti added the comment:

Looks like str.splitlines is using STRINGLIB_ISLINEBREAK which in turn uses Py_UNICODE_ISLINEBREAK, so the behavior should be correct.  If splitting on \n, \r, and \r\n only is common enough with might add a bool arg to splitlines to restrict the splitting on those 3 only, but I can't think about any good name for such arg.
