Corinna and I have discussed this in the past.  The problem is that the
'read' command should always be text mode whether it is interactive or
not.  Also, if sh is reading a shell script via:

sh < foo

the input should be in O_TEXT mode.

But then, if ash is reading from a pipe, stdin should, IMO, be in binary
mode.

I'm not sure how to accomodate all of those issues.
