[kramdown-users] LaTeX line break incorrect

LaTeX parses paragraphs and line breaks like kramdown. A line break on 
the last text line of a paragraph is not possible and will be ignored. 
So when we have in kramdown

   This is a line\\
   with a break

it should produce the LaTeX output

   This is a line\newline
   with a break

and not as it is now

   This is a line\newline

   with a break

In LaTeX you could even write \\ instead of \newline, then it would be 
exactly the same as in kramdown.
