Ah, OK.  No, it won't parse body text.  I guess that's another potential
feature request for consideration.  But since the typical document
contains quite a lot of body text, putting it all through a regexp is
going to have a bigger impact on performance than anything it does now.

You can run any combination of transformations through it, only provided
they're supported in the first place.
