Bug #2134 get_meta_tags() problem

get_meta_tags() has a small bug.
There are many sites over the Internet which use extremely big meta tags for keywords or description.
Some HTML editors have the bad habbit to break down meta tags with the new line character (like frontpage).
get_meta_tags() function will parse any meta tag unless it contains a newline character.
If the meta tag continues into a 2nd line, the parsing of the meta tag stops, and no output is given.
I know this is not a real bug, and surely its not php3's fault for the appearance of new line characters, but good there be possibly a solution for this kind of problems?
Thanks in advance.
