I have to admit that the extra spacing is bothering me a little bit
too. There are times when it just doesn't look that good to have a
full half-inch separating code and text that describes what's going
on. I don't know if two code block types are necessary, but I would
be happy with consistent (relatively small 1/4 inch? smaller?) space
between the code and text. And tables and text. And pre-formatted
text and text. And headings and text. And headings and code/
preformatted text/tables :)
