Wouldn't it be better (and safer) to fix the parser? Normally a properties 
file can contain any kind of line separators and still be parsed correctly, 
which is a Good Thing IMHO. E.g. according to the spec for 
	A natural line of input is terminated either by a set of line terminator 
characters (\n or \r or \r\n) or by the end of the file.
