Subject: Comments break up a paragraph when writing one-setence-per-line

I'm writing an article and decided to try putting each sentence on a different
line, which I've seen some people here recommend because it makes using version
control easier. It took a little while to get used to it, but I think I like
However, I was a bit surprised when I found that a commented line starts a new
paragraph. For example, let's say I have a paragraph but I want to comment out
a sentence because I'm not sure if I want it in.
In this paragraph I introduce an idea.
# Here is something I'm not sure about yet.
But I am sure about this.
And here is my conclusion.
When this is exported, it becomes two paragraphs, as though the commented line
was a blank line. This was unexpected, because to me this is one paragraph with
one sentence hidden.
People who write one-sentence-per-line, have you had this problem, and if so how
did you handle it?
