Looks like this is already in trunk!  I added my comments on the ticket 
(as well as another diff), but I'll put them here for anyone who cares:

I actually support a slightly different solution. I think that there are 
cases where post-wpautop() is great (most of the time for me), but I can 
see that there are times where you would want pre-wpautop() (especially 
for the less-advanced users). We should be able to do both. I'm 
attaching a patch that will allow people to use shortcodes as they 
worked before this ticket (pre-wpautop), or they can use them 
post-wpautop by passing a 3rd argument to add_shortcode like:

add_shortcode('googleMap', array($wpGoogleMaps, 'testTags'), true);

For me personally, the default should be the latter (priority 11), but I 
thought this would have as little impact on people currently developing 
for 2.5. However, if you think the default should change, I can upload 
another diff.
