But I intend that on binary files, \r\n
line endings will treat the \r as part of the line, so at least binary mounts
won't suffer from the speed impact of treating a file as unseekable the way
bash 3.1-6 does.
Would it be possible to do this dynamically (instead of keying off of
mounts, etc.): if the first line of the file read by bash has a \r\n,
use text-mode (1-char-at-a-time) semantics, else use binary semantics
