#lf is rarely used in Squeak code. Typically we use #cr. E.g., if you  
want a line break while writing to the Transcript you would send #cr.  
Same if you want a line break in a text file. Rather than switching  
between #cr, #lf, and #crlf depending on the platform being a Mac,  
Unix, or Windows, we only use #cr and rather set the stream to the  
right line end conversion method.
