 HTML5 support for galleries was introduced recently (r27302). Shortly
 after that, we decided to seize the opportunity and disable default
 gallery styles, when a theme supports HTML5 galleries (r27396).

 Last week, Nacin wondered if it would make sense to also remove the `<br>`
 element, that gets inserted to force line breaks. After we weighed pros
 and cons I asked some colleagues for their opinion, and they unanimously
 agreed that we should remove them. So let's do it and improve the markup
 even further.
