Why not use a definition list?

This is yet another example where the "dlcol" style (as seen on
pmwiki.org's Cookbook.Cookbook page) might be helpful to include in
the core.

Also, indenting a block

        like this, with leading spaces

is skin-unfriendly and cut-and-paste unfriendly.  Indenting a block

-> [@
like this, using indented block markup

is skin friendly and doesn't require removing leading spaces from a
pasted block of text.

At one time I thought the second method was to become the preferred
style for pmwiki.org, but I've noticed Pm, Hans, and many other
frequent authors are using leading spaces these days.
