Most programmers are followers in this matter, and I agree with Moshe on
this point: until something is Officially Blessed, Python programmers will
stay away from every gimmick in unbounded droves.
I personally don't care whether markup is ever defined, because I already
gave up on it. But I-- like you --won't wait forever for anything. We're
not the norm.
