My guess is that's for network traffic rather than local files.  If you make 
a local file with your local line ending, the web stuff should do the 
conversion when it sends out a text file.

What does python do with \n?  Is that a literal \n, or an end of line marker? 
 Another guess is that you shouldn't use \n but rather writeline.  (at least 
when making csv type files that are intended for network use)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
