Ahh... when you said "Add an extra line feed at the end of each line
(happens everywhere)" is sounded like you meant there should be two
line feeds after every line. My editor is getting in the way when it
comes to the line feed after the last line in a file... I'll take
care of this.

Ahh... this is a late modification that VC++ didn't have a problem
with. Until "finalizing" the draft for submission the cv_state was
public. When I made it private I missed the fact that the pimpl
classes used them and VC++ doesn't seem to care. I'll correct this
as well.
