I'm glad to hear you confirm my feelings - and you're right, Chaperon's  
handling of wiki text works.

Sounds good.
Adding regexp-based line splitting to Slop should be easy, as long as  
you don't need elements that span multiple input lines.

Yes, this would be nice.
Maybe Slop's limitations will bug someone enough so that they start  
implementing it ;-)

Sounds very interesting!
