No -- if zsh can handle cr+lf internally, then let it do so.  Explicitly 
open function files in binary mode -- this will override the "textmode 
mount" which sets the default read mode.

That way, number of bytes reported by stat() will equal the number of 
bytes reported by read().  The buffer thus filled will contain cr+lf -- 
but supposedly zsh can deal with that...
