At the moment I much prefer the single curly brackets
to double-curlies them, even though double-curlies
would seem to offer a cleaner upgrade path.  But I'm also 
looking at the long-term authoring requirements, and in the 
trade-off of future authors versus present requirements, I 
sometimes fall on the side of making things better for people 
in the future even if it means some short-term pain in
the present.

It is, however, a great idea, and I'll keep it in mind as
we go forward.
