As an aside ... I'm not quite sure what happens if we have a file with
CR LF line endings that is text content.  It looks like ... it will
count the last character as a space (since '\r' counts as a space with

\r will be encoded by the quoted-printable encoder.  That might end up on
the receiving MUA as lines be delimited by CR CR LF.  I am unclear if
we can do better; it seems that in this situation there are no good
