Both of these sounds reasonable, and maybe both are needed? 

As a (temporary?) workaraound, what about introducing a special markup
with the purpose of removing vertical whitespace?

Slightly related, I'm somewhat annoyed that something like

	* Item A
	(:include PageThatDoesNotExist:)
	* Item B

causes a vertical space. I've been having some annoying problems with
whitespace, includes and definition of wiki styles lately so I'd
definitely have use for a swallow-vspace-operator... See


for an example.
