[Mono-devel-list] Microsoft.VisualBasic Newline Constants

(I previously sent a similar message, but I wasn't subscribed from this 
account, and the administrator hasn't yet approved it)

The Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace has some errors with the newline 
constants that have been there for quite some time. I have finally grown 
tired of seeing them and have written a small patch to fix them.

Furthermore, it seems like there are bugs in the InputVBFile and 
BinaryVBFile because they check for only carriage returns to find the end of 
the line. This approach will not work in Unix, and is only partly correct in 
Windows. It also seems to me that the choice of vbCrLf to mean "\r\n" is 
unwise on most platforms.

I'd like any comments on how this should be handled, and I'd be happy to 
write any patches to fix it.
