CRLF is required for IMAP and POP too.  The inconvenience is having to compute
the length of the message, in octets.  The FS can only tell how many octets the
native format takes.  One has to add the number of lines.  Storing that info in
the file name is a possibility, if you don't have a dedicated FS.
