Should we keep pre as a needed style ?

Pre is used to make fixed lengeth where exact spacing is preserved.  It is useful when entering or pasting from ascii art or where the person has initially built a text file and used a fixed length font.  For example:

    1234567890
1---^
2----^
3-----^
4------^
5-------m
6--------^
7---------^


Works but if i past that same thing outside of a pre, it will goof it up

1234567890
1---^
2----^
3-----^
4------^
5-------m
6--------^
7---------^

The question is whether we preserve this feature, or lop it off with the other styles in the selection box which are scheduled for demolition because they just allow for shouting.

This is rather exotic. I can't right now think when I might use it.

It is useful if you are quoting from an ascii text and want to preserve the spacing both vertical and horizontal in the original text.
