In case it matters I ran my tests on

GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
  of Thu Aug 24 2000 on porky.devel.redhat.com

I'm not sure how long emacs has had this feature. I do remember that

various editors on my Mac and didn't worry in the least about line 
ending conventions. It just worked.
