Hmm ... the patch works for data that contains no backslashes,
asterisks, backquotes, vertical bars, nor underscores.  Nor perhaps
other special characters that I might've missed in one cursory scan of
the ReST spec.  I'm not sure which side of this should be considered a
"corner case"; but I am quite certain that anyone trying to pass data
into a ReST-reading application will soon be dissatisfied with this
