To disable the ! markup, but leave !!, !!!, etc.:

    Markup('^!', 'block',

No, we don't have to include the "p" -- I can make that part
of the wikistyle.

As a local customization, yes.  In the core, no -- there's no requirement
that the sidebars be named "SideBar" and I really don't want to do
program a lot of sidebar-specific monkey-business into the core.

Sorry, you lost me on this one.

No, I thought the whole idea was that it would not be a *document*
heading (c.f. Crisses' earlier message).  The thing in the sidebar
really is still a "heading", it just isn't a document heading and
it doesn't generate <h1>.  Or do you have a better name than "heading"
for those section-divider-looking-things that sit in the sidebar?
