[PATCH] wc reallines

I noticed the lack of an option in wc to print the number of lines in a
file. As you know, the -l option counts the number of LF characters, which
is not the same as the number of lines if the file ends in the middle of a
line (the last character is not an LF).

I wrote a patch which adds such an option. Use it if you like. I have
patched against wc in textutils-2.1.
