Radical idea: if we have to keep single-newline-means-linebreak, then we don't offer that in conjunction with the RTE. Remove that option from the RTE and add the checkbox, working as it used to in setting a database flag, to the form that is shown if the "disable RTE completely" option is selected. If you want to use the "auto-format" thing, you don't get to use the RTE on the same post.

This does arguably mean removing a feature. I don't know how many used the newline-to-br functionality and round-tripped things in the old RTE. But it's another way to proceed without requiring user-unfriendly kludge. I don't think there's a way to make this work that won't make somebody unhappy...

Now I'm feeling that I'm the only voice on this issue, so I'm going to shut up for a while, and hope that others have opinions.....
