    But that's fine - at that point we're literally _supposed_ to drop
    characters: we have to, in order to see the EOLN.

    But we're only supposed to drop characters IFF:
    - the buffer is full
    - we are in canon mode
    - we _still_ haven't seen a single EOLN in the whole buffer

    If any of these three isn't true, we're not supposed to drop anything.

    That's my argument.
