offering a choice between some future homegrown superset of Textile, and
a souped-up Xinha). I need to (this is on my someday-maybe-list) figure
out a way to *strictly* parse it. Not easy considering the amount of
abuses of syntax people have put in over the years. (Using our h2-syntax
to center images is one of the worst examples, but there are others,

format, while serializing to the fashion-of-the-day, human readably
syntax in the very moment of delivery for edit/display.
I do agree, though.
