    :name: field

There's a newline between "field" and "body".

So let me anticipate the next question: "How does someone specify
*only* \n in a field?" Can't. Not without some directive/substitution
trickery, anyhow.

Hmm. Maybe this? ::

    :name: \

I don't know what the parser as written would do with it.
