That was to avoid a Windows-only newline problem.  Don't complain too

You are in any case missing the point: -L is a useless switch and there
is no reason to make it easy to use.  (I don't think I have ever once
had occasion to use it in all the years I've worked on Postgres, and I
have certainly run initdb in orders-of-magnitude more contexts than any
ordinary user would.)  If I have to waste any more time on this
discussion, I will propose solving the problem by removing the switch
