Fair comment. From my point of view:
- we *really* needed the ability to include from the start
up to an anchor
- I couldn't see how to do it as a sensible local customisation
so patched pmwiki just for 'start to anchor'
- others have created more advanced patches
- if you do that, it's logical to support from anchor to end,
from anchor to anchor, and just anchor paragraph
- the other variants are nice, but I'd be equally happy if
they were omitted
"A model should be as simple as possible, but no simpler."
My experience is that people use a subset of the available
markup, but different people use different subsets. One
person's core feature is another's gratuitous extension.
If someone unfamiliar with the markup edited a page with
the extended include syntax, would this get in the way?
Depends on the person, I guess.
