OK, then this explains why the output from Sed always produces CRLF
Windows EOL format.  The Sed manual clearly says:

  When [the -b] option is specified, @command{sed} will open
  input files in binary mode, thus not requesting this special processing
  and considering lines to end at a line feed.

Note the "input files" part.  So it sounds like the --help output
could use some update, to say the same.
