Hello,

`org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists' is an old variable (formely
known as `org-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists) which doesn't make much
sense nowadays.

Indeed, since "org-list.el" revamp (around Org 7.0.1 IIRC), inserting
two blank lines in a row terminates a list anyway. This is consistent
with footnote definitions. Now it just makes Org files less portable
without any benefit.

Therefore, I suggest to mark it as deprecated in Org 8.3 release notes,
and remove it altogether in Org 8.4.

WDYT?


Regards,

Fine with me.  It streamlines the syntax so it's good with me.

Done. I'll write the patch once 8.3 is released.
