Just FYI, you can propose transparent treatment along UTF-16 series ;-)

Bug #8255: File#each_line omits last byte (==\0) if encoding is utf-16

If File#each_line was given utf-16 encoded file with 'rb:utf-16', each line lacks the last one byte.
For example if the line is "a\0\r\0\n\0" in binary, the read line contains "a\0\r\0\r".

See the attchement.
This issue is appear both current 2.1.0 and 2.0.0.
