No reason to prefer one behavior to another here, but I do prefer
consistency. =)

I maintain yeganesh (see <> for more info),
and profiles have started getting cluttered up with a version with a
newline and a version without from people upgrading dmenu. However, as
long as there's a clear policy on which versions will output an extra
newline it's easy to work around by checking the output of "dmenu -v"
