Just for completeness on documenting this issue on the list, I'll point
out that the "real" docs here:

http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_chapter/coreutils_8.html

indicate that --output-delimiter is only supposed to work for -f, not -c
invocations. But that begs the questions: 1) Did that change (in
coreutils) since 9.0? (Because it used to work.) 2) Why then does it
give me any delimiter at all?
