I don't really like handling newlines specially. For instance, I could
have data like
1, 2, 3;
4, 5, 6;
7, 8, 9;
Allowing an "alternative separator" would sound better to me. The above
data could then be read like
fromfile('foo.txt', sep=' , ', sep2=' ; ')
fromfile('foo.txt', sep=[' , ', ' ; '])
Since whitespace matches also newlines, this would work.
