 As a formatting function, {{{balanceTags()}}} should do just that -
 balance the tags.  It's behavior should not depend on the
 {{{use_balanceTags}}} option.  Whether the function is *called* should
 depend on the option.


  1. makes {{{balanceTags()}}} option agnostic
  2. deprecates {{{force_balance_tags()}}}
  3. creates {{{wp_balance_tags()}}} which calls {{{balanceTags()}}}
 depending on the {{{use_balanceTags}}} option.

 #2650 suggested the same and offered a patch that maintained backward
 compatibility.  This patch is cleaner but breaks backward compatibility
 for some plugins.  The older ticket was rejected, but I think the idea
 should be reconsidered (hence this ticket).
