Traditional Mac is to use \r. However OSX is really Unix underneath
where Postgres works so I think it would be better to stick with \n.
I don't know exactly what they are doing, but I've noticed that OSX
applications don't seem to have a problem with \n in text files the
way they did under OS9.
AFAIK only Windows uses the \r\n combination.
