Note that already contains a dotest_line_by_line function. 
It's used by dotest_internal_debug, which is a plug-compatible
replacement for dotest_internal that can be used for debugging (it's
significantly slower, which is why it isn't used by default).  While
there aren't a lot of tests that need .* to match newline, I think there
are more than a few.
