A network end-of-line *is* \r\n and not simply '\n'.  This is convention.
It's the same for SMTP, it's the same for FTP, NNTP, and probably HTTP as
well.

The default behaviour should be to do the right thing on any telnet user.

We've already seen bogus implementations in UNIX telnet.  These have been
fixed, rather than redefining the norm.  Which is as it should be...
