Hello Mike,

The "simple VS flexible" fight is always a challenge :)

I don't know how much is far enough, but in case of doubt, I do prefer
to not implement new things.

External processing is something may cause problems in conversion
time, problems that are not related to txt2tags, but to the
script/processor in question. Until we have a clean and reliable
plugin schema (v3, I'm looking to you), I prefer to not add this kind
of feature.

But I liked your idea of "process the next block and substitute its
contents with the output of the processor". When we finally have
external processing, I'll want to have this block-based execution.
