Re the first half: Yes, I understand that, and that's why I don't think we can reach what I'd consider to be a good solution while supporting the single-newline-means-linebreak feature[1]. That feature forces you to have the page do user-unfriendly things, such as resetting that check box every time.

Re second half: Damn, I didn't realise that the old system did it at display time rather than submit time. That's awkward :-/ With that said, if we could find a way to make things work right within the RTE, I don't actually see a reason *not* to just add br tags at submit time and never set the backend newline-to-br bit again...
(editing old posts might be awkward, I guess. And there are probably other gotchas that I haven't thought of :-/)

Once again, your work on this is appreciated, and I'm sorry for bringing up problems!
