Ok, but I didn't see anywhere in php documentation that 
trailing newlines are silently ignored. We should also be 
careful that problems may arise with editors using other 
end of lines than unix ones (dos' \r\n and mac's \r). 

If somebody editing the code with an editor that doesn't 
preserve end of lines may break it, the code becomes "text 
editor dependant" which is not exactly our goal... :)
