OOOOPS.  No, this won't work yet.  Turns out that
commentboxplus.php is using HandleEdit, which means
that the above will prevent people from adding comments
to pages that already have a (:title:) directive on them.

I'll have think a bit more about how we might handle
per-action blocklists -- this really isn't something 
that we had explicitly contemplated before now (at
least I wasn't aware of it).

(Pm prepares to hit 'send' on this message... and then...)

Oh!  Yes, I do know how to handle it.  Okay, I'll add the
capability into an upcoming beta where we can test it.
