Hmm... It seems like removing optional trailing newlines early ought to be more general and
robust.  After all, perl has had chomp() for what, a decade or more?

As of this year, I think chop is 20 years old (+/- 1 year).  So this is what the future looks
like...  not very impressive.  I thought we'd all be using CORBA-connected dataflow languages
by now!

Well, there's chop() and there's chomp().  Methinks chomp() is more appropriate to handle
optional newlines.  :-)
