Maybe it's time to propose reStructuredText support.  Andreas did some 
work to add reStructuredText to Zope 2.7, but I don't know if his work 
has been officially accepted, nor if it's really flexible enough for 
reST.  Richard Jones' ZReST document has some odd behaviors (certain 
reStructuredText rules don't work) that I was somehow able to duplicate 
when monkey patching CMF to allow text-handling via small Handler 

Anyways, it's rules are much clearer.  Like you, I still get surprised 
by STX-NG's indentation rules.  And how long have we been using it?  I 
still can't get a code snippet right on first try.  Ugh.
