The warning was added before I was involved with quickbook. It doesn't
seem to have worked - there are still line breaks all over the place.
My vote would be for removing the warning from '[br]' but keeping it
on '\n' and not supporting '\n' in quickbook 1.6 documents.

In the current version you can't have paragraphs in lists. This is
something I want to deal with, but getting it right is tricky.

Take a look at the attached - it uses the docbook markup for Q&As. It
uses a horrible hack for nested paragraphs. We could possibly add
something to the CSS to style it better as well.
