I have been staying out of the conversation since I did not notice the 
original patch go in and don't want to get involved in a messy 
discussion. I have not fully read up on the plentiful discussions.

Steven's new UI element is good functionality, but isn't something I 
like see happening in release candidate phase.

The new variable which chx proposed is a hidden setting. By default, 
hidden settings are not good since they increase debugging load and code 
obscurity. The approach does accomplish the stated goals.

I think the two simplest options are the best- either roll the patch 
back, or keep <break />. Rollback is a good option because <!--break--> 
has been happily working previously. Keeping <break /> is good because 
it is being tested now. Either of these changes should of course come 
with any necessary associated cleanup.
