C-q is a beautiful key....

for example if we want a new line we do C-q C-j (C-q RET gives us (me
really, i can't speak for others) ^M which isn't what we(i) want). so

M-x replace-regexp RET SPACE + RET C-q C-j

will replace all sequences of spaces with new lines.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget the perfect offering.
There's a crack in everything.
It's how the light gets in.

p.s. - if anybody wants too tell me why i have to use C-j and can't
use RET i'd be happy to listen...
