We still ought to come up with an explicit paragraph block marker.
It's been discussed previously but I forget if we selected anything
(or what was chosen).  I know we talked about 'P:' at one point --
the above could then be done with:

    * [==]
      P: %p b% text %b1% more
      P: %p c% next line

A really odd choice might be to allow the %p% wikistyle at the
beginning of a line to do double-duty as the "force a new 
paragraph marker".

    This is some text.
    %p% This is a new paragraph,
    and this is 
    also part of that paragraph.
    %p% This is a third paragraph.
    %p right% This is a right-aligned paragraph.

Somehow this feels very natural to me.  A list with nested
(explicit) paragraphs would then be

    * [==]
      %p b% text %b1% more text
      %p c% next line
