[Scummvm-devel] File handling revamp

One thing that was mentioned on #scummvm yesterday, which I don't think
has come up in this discussion yet (I've been out of town for a few
days, and haven't read it as carefully as I should), is that the
configuration file is apparently written with Unix line breaks, even
under Windows. They're created by


so they're always written as one byte. (I haven't actually verified this
myself, since I don't run ScummVM under Windows.)

The readLine() function should already handle anything that looks even
remotely like a line break (which is good, because we want to be able to
read any old text file), but I guess it would be a good idea to write
text files in the native format. (Or is there any case where we want to
write non-native line breaks?)
