It'd be a darn fine thing. I suspect we'll
need a fully working
parsoid/VE (which actually parse this stuff properly) first ... but
users might baulk at 15 sec to syntax-colour a complex wiki page, even
if that is a tremendous improvement on the previous 60sec.

*does* parse Brainfuck. Mind you, BF's probably simpler.
