FWIW, I hit this issue about half a year ago, and argued pretty strenuously
that breaking backward compatibility was a Terrible Terrible Thing. But,
having adapted to the new markup spec, I find it's more logically consistent
*and* easier to read while editing.

I still have a semester's worth of class slides to convert from the old
format, week by week, but it's worth it -- do it once per presentation, and
that's the end of it.

The new way really is better (I say this as someone who was horrified six
months ago to find that my old presentations were broken).
