And don't forget that carriage-return takes longer than printing individual
characters, so you need to send CR LF to give it time to get back to the
first column while it's feeding a line.  Or CR CR LF just in case.

(Or was that the Olivetti terminal?  Or the DECwriter?  One of those
mechanical things anyway.)
