formatting, and several users want user preference to decide formatting. There

costs to not letting the user decide, that I feel are not being appreciated.

The reason I'm sticking on this point is because it also relates to our future
road map. If Org continues to do this -- to trade flexibility of formatting
for regularity of parsing -- it might continue to alienate some of us.
