Actually, it occurs in more than just poetry--I've run into several
situations with it.  For example, the PmWiki.QuickLinks box also has 
the same problem--it has to specify a bunch of [[<<]] in order to 
get each of the entries to appear on different lines.  Others are
running into similar problems when they want to create a list of
links in a side panel on a page somewhere but not use a bullet list
or definition list.
