It's a tough call, and I always try to avoid the touch call:-)
I believe this brain-damage 0x15, 0x25 -> 000a -> 0x15, 0085->0x15
mapping is the result of the
"fix" we made for #4159519, as the workaround solution for the "what is
the real new line on ebcdic
system" problem, while none of the official ebcdic<->unicode mapping
tables from IBM/MSFT do
NOT have this hack documented/recorded at all. So we might want to
re-check the soundness of
this fix, which was made 10 years ago, sometime.
