Dan,

It seems then (with the upcoming version) that when I am editing a file with CR terminators I won’t know whether, if I send my modified file to someone else, they will be able to read it properly.

I work with text documents a lot in MEW, and if one has CR rather than CRLF terminators I want that to be apparent so I convert the file to be easily read on other PCs. If MEW handles line terminators in stealth mode and simply passes them on unchanged in a saved file, that is a big problem I think.
