Enormous amounts of whitespace is your only hope of avoiding
write-once code with MediaWiki syntax. Someone did send an email to
either this list or the wikitech one with an alternative syntax that
looked pretty good. I'm not sure if they ever wrote a implementation
as an extension, or if it's still just an external compiler.
