This ultimately amounts to syntactic sugar compared to the existing api.
It's tasty, but adds no new functionality. Also there's still the issue of
how this new api would provide the existing functionality around line
endings, so less functionality at the moment. I'm not opposed to
additions/enhancements,  just want to put it in perspective and to question
whether the api churn is worth it.
