BTW, I should also mention that having thought about it some
more overnight, I think it's fine if the documentation pages
use [@...@] over leading spaces to do preformatted text sections.

Even after introducing [@...@], we still get the occasional question
about "how do I created a preformatted text block", and there
are still people responding with the space+[=...=] mechanism
as being the way to do it.  So, if the documentation uses [@...@]
more frequently, perhaps it'll be more likely that others will
standardize on it as well.

(One downside of [@...@] over initial spaces is that $Variables
in a [@...@] won't link to their corresponding documentation
