I think having a new option is not the best solution. I would prefer to
preserve the distinction between the two commands (RET and C-j).
The patch below does this: define org-return-indent and bind it to C-j.
Whether you want to bind it to RET is up to you.

Thanks for pointing out this issue and for the patch! I don't know what
Carsten will do with this, but having two solutions is certainly good :)
