Boy are you strict when a page needs just a "-" to do its special thing.
E.g., MediaWiki:Privacy. Only one byte allowed. No LF or CRLF or else
it becomes an embarrassing mess on the screen.
Not all environments/situations are sure to support producing
unterminated lines, so don't be so strict.
Final whitespace is stripped from pages, so you have to *really* go out of your
way to produce such (eg invalid input and breaking the code).
Well importTextFile.php, which is what I use, preserves whitespace.
