Christoph is the person to answer this - I haven't really kept track.

Yup - mixed mode is really quite evil, as once you use it, you can't  
really go back.  However, unless Christoph has some folks stacked  
somewhere working on this, I don't think anybody else has worked on  
it at all.

No idea...  I'm half-tempted to rip out the CreoleFilter out of the  
core anyway, as it seems that we have nobody who is interested in or  
capable of keeping it up and current.  It might better that it was  
developed as a separate module.
