[Twisted-Python] "local" semantics sought in twisted.protocols.smtp.sendmail

The API documentation for twisted.protocols.smtp.sendmail method states that 
the incoming msg parameter ((a string or a file object) must contain contain 
that end with a line feed character because, verbatim: "Line endings must be
local (I.e., '\n')" ... the URL that I'm quoting from is 

I am curious what is meant by the word "local" to describe the use of line 
endings in the API documentation. Does local mean something specific to an 
operating system of which the Python interpreter is compiled for and runs on 
top of (and if so, doesn't that break the philosophy of Python which is 
mostly OS agnostic)?
