Such indentation is going to be used for paragraphs in lists, but I
hadn't fully worked out how to do it when I was finishing off 1.6.
Previously such indentation would be interpreted as a code block,
which is usually not intended. Markup that is usually interpreted
incorrectly and would change meaning when upgrading to 1.7 will cause
problems in the long run, so it's better to catch it sooner rather
than later. If you want paragraphs in lists then you'll need to use an
explicit list tag, if you want a code block then you should use an
explicit code block (i.e. two backticks at the beginning and end).
