I think I've been misunderstood. I was reacting to the suggestion of a more
general framework for any magic word to hook in at this point in the parse and
giving what I thought was a good example implementation. Obviously the
shortcodes themselves are more like tag extensions or templates, but the
concept of the parser acting on hooks registered by different magic words is
what I was presenting. Hopefully that clears it up. I'm not entering a feature
request. :)
