I use the current definition a lot; usage patterns vary, it seems.

In your typical use there are *no* non-newline spaces?  Or are you of
the non-TeX school where you represent a paragraph break by "\n " or
"\n\t" or so?

I think that, at least in TeX style (ie, paragraph break is
represented by "\n\n" with no ident, also used by various "structured
text" formats), this probably would unpleasantly surprise many people.

It seems to me that a more flexible and discoverable (and to you
equivalent, up to default keybindings) idea would be to define
`paragraph-join' and `paragraph-break', and bind the former to M-SPC.
