Ah, oops.  I meant to ask about calling lines() on the empty string.  "".lines()

Looking at the implementation from a week ago [1], I think it
disagrees with BufferedReader about what lines are - specifically when
it comes to the empty string and any string ending with a line
separator.  That seems not good.  But that behavior isn't specified in
Jim's description or examples so I'm wondering if that's intentional.
(Or I could be reading the code wrong).
