Yes please. If someone wants to format comments differently, then
pretty print it any way you like. Shout might be good for doing that.

There are a lot of things that might be done to improve the
quality and quantity of comments in Squeak. Messing around with
line break characters in other people's comments is not one of
those things. Please just don't.
