I was reviewing some of the changes in Mantis and found

That is yet far better than previous implementation, but I still
wonder about the logic:

wantsLineEndConversion: aBoolean
	wantsLineEndConversion :=  aBoolean.
	lineEndConvention ifNil: [ self detectLineEndConvention ].

Why to detectLineEndConvention if user explicitely asked
wantsLineEndConversion: false?
Of course, since wantsLineEndConversion is false by default, most
senders will use with aBoolean = true.
But then why providing an argument at all?
