mixing lists is easy to do. Just use Alt + <left/right> to
decrease/increase the item's indentation.

I think a way to terminate list is quite important, particularly when
embedding list inside an article. I always found it difficult to start a
new paragrah after a list because when you type TAB on the first line of
the new paragraph it indents it to the level that shows it is part of
the last list item.

How about making double blank line do that?

Cheers,
