I am using scrbook for my thesis (so no Titlesec) and would like to reformat the way paragraphs work in a very minor way: I need a symbol after the heading, with even spacing between the symbol and the following text. I am using this in a meaningful way (referring to sections within discussed works as I recap their contents), so resorting to other levels of sectioning is no good option.
Fooling around with various solutions for other related problems got me nowhere.
The result should look like:
Bacon is good | dolores has an ipsum in her amet ....
[with a bit more space around the "|"]
