At the time I was thinking more along the lines of "delegation 
of work".  :-)

Looks good to me, or at least good enough that I'm going to go with it
for now.  Instead of explicitly listing the color in the >><<
section, I just defined a custom >>recipeinfo<< wikistyle for it so 
that we can easily change it later.

And based on the feedback thus far, I think we should adopt the
new format for the Cookbook.  I've already updated the 
Cookbook.Template with new format, and over time we can slowly 
migrate existing recipes into the new format.
