It does in at least one circumstance. If you want to have a continued line,
by placing a backslash as the last character on the line, you *must* follow that
with a LF, not a CR, because the pre-processer understands an escaped LF as a
continuation, but has no idea what to do with a CR.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
