IIRC, the default windows notepad.exe (which is the 'best'/only plain
text editor in the base windows install) only understands "\r\n"
linebreaks, while the Lua copyright/history/install/readme files use
standard *nix "\n" linebreaks. Hence viewing them will crush
everything onto a single line.

The "get a better text editor" argument is flawed in the user
friendliness sense. If an operating system's default program cannot
open the file, then you might have just lost a potential user.
