>Exactly that, yes.

Well, there is a good reason why Markdown doesn't do this. Many
prefer to use a plain text editor which doesn't wrap text (I for
example prefer my text files this way) and we insert hard new
lines to keep the lines from becoming too long. If those hard
newlines were translated into <br /> Markdown would be useless
for a lot of people.

(and I don't think there is an option to get it to behave the
way you want)
