If I remember correctly, the last time I put a
tag on an article (being too lazy to look up the preferred
date-stamped version), a bot came along less than a day later
and replaced the tag with the properly date-stamped version.
So clearly we could use the same sort of bot here, if we wanted to.
Problem it is one thing to put a mess of code at the top of an article
and quite another to put it halfway through.
Come now. Unless a bot is trying to do section editing or
something, it's got the entire text of an article available
to it, so it's trivial to search the whole article for the
template(s) to be edited. And it's not "a mess of code";
it's either a slightly-differently-named template, or the
addition of a single parameter. This is no problem at all.
