Or even experiment with the SHELLOPTS environment variable. If you set it
in windows, even the first run of bash will obey igncr; or, from within
bash, if you do 'export SHELLOPTS' to convert it from a shell variable to
an environment variable, then further bash invocations will inherit the
setting of this option, without having to edit every script.
