I read the issue, and ironically 'gut feeling' and personal taste was 
the only reason offered for *changing* <!--break--> to something else. I 
don't care enough about the issue to fight on way or another, but the 
thread was frustrating to read; a late-in-the-game core patch went up, 
received NO positive reviews, and several negative ones. It was 
immediately committed.
