The patch is not platform-specific. It simply makes psql accept the same line endings on COPY FROM that the backend will accept - in effect it makes it line-end agnostic - this is a Good Thing (tm).

We are still months away from releasing 8.0, so I think doing this for tomorrow's 7.4 bundle makes sense.
