What about doing like C does for writing files. You have text translated  
mode (the default) and binary mode. Binary mode writes things as-is and  
translated mode converts newlines to the platform format.

With that said, I would think that the mode would be something you set  
before using write() on FileWriter, and not something append() does when  
building the blob.
