I don't think we really care about capitalization in this specific case 
(or that it can be handled right anyway).

So would the attached patch work?

If no line feed is hardcoded then the line will wrap at the 80th column. 
The line feeds are only there to ensure words are not cut in the middle. 
I suspect the authors of the command line tools did not care about that. 
Or they did not want to hardcode line wrapping at 80 columns when the 
terminal may be wider or narrower. And that issue was probably 
overlooked in a number of cases too. So these are probably all 
contributing factors to the current situation.
