I started with a version of a tear line myself this morning, then
I realized that someone might actually want to use "--" in the
markup itself. So then I switched to the directive form, especially
since authors are likely to be minimally familiar with a directive
In the mail-to-wiki gateway I'm currently designing (in my head),
I'm thinking the delimiter will be:
(:post Group.PageName author=Pm summary="My Post":)
- "(:post " has to be at the beginning of a line to count
- Group.PageName is converted to a valid pagename
- author= and summary= are optional values for authorname and summary
(we may add more options soon)
- adds everything up to the next (:post:) or (:postend:) directive

I don't use a POP3 mail client, so I really don't know what a
typical mail client uses (and don't necessarily want to be installing
mail clients just to find out). Anyone else have an idea as to
what most mail clients use as their default poll interval for mail?
