Cannot enter unfiltered HTML/PHP code

To use WordPress to create a web site, rather than just a blog, a user (possibly restricted to the administrator)needs to be able to create PAGEs. To create anything decent requires using HTML and PHP.
Logging in as "admin", with the WYSIWYG editor turned off means the HTML editor is invoked when one edits a page (or post, or...).
I find it beyond belief that the code I enter is NOT saved EXACTLY as I enter it. Inserting paragraph tags and break tags is inexcusable. I can work around some of the problem by mucking up my code (by running it all together).
At a minimum, the administrator should be able to create pages, posts, etc., without any constraints -- just like he can create template files.
Messing up the PHP means that, for example, it becomes very difficult to create anchor and image tags that use the wp-config.php settins rather than hard coding the URLs.
