I don't believe the behavior's changed, and it's easy enough to have any 
other behavior you want.

But unfortunately if you want to ever support the other 90+% who use 
Windows, you will only confuse them if you have different behaviors for 
Enter and Return:

It seems everyone who designs PC keyboards are all under 25 years of 
age, having never seen nor heard of a typewriter, which would explain 
why they exhibit no understanding of the origin of the Return key on 
their keyboards:

PS: Oddly enough, while I can find that post easily on GMane and Nabble, 
searching for "typewriter" in the Rev list archives comes up empty.

Not to RunRev: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add your own search on your 
archives.  Outside services like Google have no obligation to index all 
of your content, and many searches with it produce incomplete results.
