The "shock absorbers" are already there, the user can already 'd' instead
of 'Enter', and thereby force retrieval in binary mode, and then do whatever
he/she likes with the 'd'ownloaded file.  The patch doesn't enable a new
way to fix a given broken situation, it just tries to do automatically
what the user can do anyway (and hides the problem).

(If I have mischaracterized the patch, please correct).
