I think what has happened is that somehow the correct filling for
\(...\) and \[...\] broke at some point in time but no one noticed, and
I myself thought that this strange filling where there's a line break
after every inline math construct was intensional.  Therefore I made
$...$ be filled consistently with \(...\) in the above commit.

Because it seems many people seem to still use $...$ instead of \(...\)
now this "comb-style" filling attracted attention and users complained
which resulted in the change of defaults.

Now I see that $...$ was probably filled correctly and \(...\) (and
likely alse \[...\]) was filled wrongly, so my commit fixed on the wrong
end.  So feel free to revert that commit and the change of the default

Unfortunately, I can't estimate when I have time to look into this and
fix the right end of the breakage.  This is my first week on a new job
[1], and on the weekend I have to do some work on our house which must
be finished before the wet and cold season starts.
