Options to control handling of \r (carriage returns)

I’m a long-term meld user/fan.
Just recently got blind-sided by the default \r handling which strips 'em before diffing.
The file I had was output from a QA test over at https://github.com/performancecopilot/pcp that contained mostly lines terminated \n but some legitimately ended in \r\n this led to 2 problems
(a) when I merged the \r’s vanished, which was bad in this case
(b) comparing the file versions with the \r’s and without the \r’s, meld reported no diffs, which is not correct and bad in this case
Is there any way to optionally (not everyone would want this), to suppress \r stripping before diffing?
