Not if you want to be interoperable with native applications.  You can't
even open a text file in Notepad with Unix line endings.

(Another reason "underlying host filesystem" doesn't make sense: this is
BlobBuilder, not FileWriter--it's not associated with a file, so it's not
associated with any particular filesystem.)
