Comment (by markjaquith):

 Argument in favor of 2.0 style:

 <!--more--> hides stuff from your front page, so that people have to view
 the entry itself to get the whole thing.  Your feed is basically a
 machine-readable version of your front page... why should it be any
 different?  If you wanted people to read the whole thing without an
 additional click, why use <!--more--> at all?

 Another reason:
 changing it again will create even more confusion than has been caused by
 the change in 2.0 ... they'll write limericks about us:

 There once was a CMS from Automattic,
 That had <!--more--> behavior quite erratic.
 They flipped and they flopped, until Podz's poor head popped
 And the forums were put to a panic.
