I recommend that ~<cr> mean "ignore the <cr> and all following whitespace".
Let the : modifier mean "but retain the whitespace" and @ mean
"but retain the <cr>". Thus ~:@<cr> is the same as a bare <cr>.
I made this change in the source and documentation, for the Lisp machine.
Fixed a slight bug or two while I was at it.
