I've reported that 'tr' behaves abnormally, that's about all I can do. 
If you guys want to be edgelords and ship a broken 'tr' in the name of 
saving 500 bytes, then that's your prerogative.

'tr' is a standard system utility, I wasn't expecting such pushback 
against making it behave as every other modern implementation does.

If there's somebody here on the mailing list with commit access that 
wants to do something about this, then I guess now is the time to have 
your say.
