Just want to capture that in many cases the user could want the ↵ to mean "break this line and create a new line"

I don't think this is 100% of the time, but enough that we should think about it.

Jdforrester-WMF set Security to None.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
