I have now looked, and in today's two base64 encoded posts in the
"export list subscribers list" thread, the decoded message body does
have text with only <LF> as a line ending.

I don't know if there is a standard that says your MUA 'should'
recognize a single <LF> in the decoded text as a line break, but of
five MUA's I just tried, four - Ultrafunk Popcorn 1.76, Mozilla
Thunderbird 18.104.22.168, MS Outlook Express 6 and Mutt 22.214.171.124i - all
rendered <LF> in the decoded text as a line break. The fifth -
Qualcomm Eudora 5.2 (very old) - didn't decode the base64 encoded text
at all, it just displayed the raw base64 encoded data.
