Btw, the Graph::Easy extension (returing HTML) also runs into this. Even 
when you add no emoty lines and leading spaces, mediawiki seems to insert 
a paragraph every N lines or so. This of course creates wierd empty 
spaces in the generated table :(

In the end I stripped *ever* \n from the output and now return a gigantous 
long line.

A way to switch this off from my extension would be great, because the 
emitted HTML becomes impossible to debug or inspect.

Best wishes,
