Personally, I would not do translation at all. That should be handled
by higher levels (stdio). If you want to use open/read etc on
text files, it is easy to handle CR vs LF vs CRLF while lexing.

Text has to be the default for fopen. However, ANSI does
not mention open/read. Making binary the default for open/read
does not conflict with making text the default for fopen.
