When you have a file developed on a system that follows a
different new-line convention.  I haven't seen a file that
big, but I'm sadly used to seeing humanly large files
display as single lines.

Of course if getLine/hGetLine accept *any* of CR, LF, CR+LF
as end-of-line (as opposed to using the platform native
convention), there's no problem.  That's a darned good idea
