Please see: [[Change Linebreak Markup Proposal]]

Now that I really think about this issue and see how divided the community is, we need to reach a compromise.  The compromise would be that each individual wiki developer could choose which line break system to use.  Our goal is to make a common unified wiki syntax and not to try to reform all the wiki engines out there.  I think this is something we could all get behind.  Feel free to go ahead and "vote" below, so we can get a better feel of which direction our community is leaning.
