IMHO, people who set $/ are, by definition, saying that they expect
lines to terminate with something other than a newline; they should
expect 'say' to conform to their wishes.  I don't like the notion of
perl second-guessing the programmer's intentions here; "Do what I
mean, not what I say" only carries so far.

That said, I very rarely set $/, so this aspect of 'say' doesn't
really affect me.
