The Options, Java Code, Formatting options allow you to specify how many blank lines should be before and after various
code elements. The problem is I don't always want to do the same thing. For instance if fields are related I don't put
in blank line between them, if they are not related I do put a blank line in.

I would like to tell the formatter to not change blank lines before or after fields. I tried setting the field before
and after options to blank and to -1 but both were treated as if 0 was specified.
