I agree.

If the newly added (:linebreaks:) to the EditQuickReference page shows some 
unwanted side effects, we could add backslashes "\" at the end of every line, 
then the "cheat sheet" will work in both cases of linebreaks, on and off.

The posted text is evaluated and converted to "Preview" before rendering the 
whole page with the edit form. In the process, the (no)linebreaks directive 
sets a global variable. At the time when the edit form is rendered, this 
global variable has already been changed.
