 You might not need it, but normal people use notepad by default, and it's
 very difficult to understand or to try to edit a srt with no visible line
 breaks. I've never seen a srt file without Windows line breaks before, and
 because SubRip was made only for windows, srt files should have Windows
 line breaks.
