This second version has minor updates to the whitespace handling.
I fixed the double check for \r (instead of \r and \n) and added
a check that text[1] wasn't past the end of the string. Given the
positive response to the initial version, I'll push this in the
next few days, unless anyone objects.

Adding a FATE test is next on my list.
