Ok, I'll change that and send a new patch.

so wrong... it can't be right, can it? Can't we do something better? Use a callback for deciding
how to split lines, or something? I haven't looked at the code, so not sure what exactly.

Well, without doing several checks for what kind of encoding the line 
has this won't be possible. I'm just glad that the function as is does 
not stop at the zero char but only on 'lf' - so even if the file is 
really binary it "works".
