hi paul -- tom will have to confirm, but i'm pretty sure the
answer to both of these is (unfortunately) "no".  the second,
especially, might actually be worth a new mode.  or, perhaps
something could be done with read- and write-hooks to convert
"newline means end of paragraph" text to "newline means end of
line" and back, on input and output.
