Obviously, doing CRLF in Perl when CRTL supports it already is not a
good idea.  What CRLF discipline should do on such an architecture is
set_mode(whatever) on the corresponding FD (with appropriate
flush()ing, of course), and store the info in the flag.  That's all.

And the current state of FD should have been queried when PerlIO is
created (may be this is done already?).
