I would be forced to worship you like a hero if you were to introduce
something to do this. I was looking for a way to do it yesterday, and
gave up with a not very good compromise. (I was actually surprised that
* A bullet point[[<<]]
More text on the same bullet point.

didn't work, only:
* A bullet point[[<<]]More text on the same bullet point.

did work. It seems to break the general ignore-linebreak trend (which I
am used to and love as though it were my own from writing a lot of
LaTeX:) Of course, I guess you can take it to the same extremes, due to
the not guarenteed unique markup that LaTeX has (i.e. you can do the
equivalent of:
* bullet 1 * bullet 2 * bullet 3
as LaTeX uses \item))

cya,
