I'm not even sure it's a bug.  Technically, if a site admin takes the
position that every newline in the markup should generate a newline
in the output, then generating the empty lines is in fact what is being
requested and the correct response.

At any rate, I'm not planning to make any changes here for 2.0.0.
You can enter it as a feature request for PITS, but we need to
better understand the rationale for suppressing the newlines in this
instance (and how one would detect it).
