   Unicode includes Line Separator U+2028 and Paragraph Separator
U+2029 but they are rarely supported and very rarely used. They are a
pain to work with since they are 3 byte sequences in UTF-8. Visual
Studio does support them.

   Python does not currently support these line separators such as in
this example which only reads 2 lines rather than 3:

with open("x.txt", "wb") as f:
	f.write("a\nb\u2029c\n".encode('utf-8'))
with open("x.txt", "r") as f:
	n = 1
	for l in f.readlines():
		print(n, repr(l))
		n += 1
