If the aim is to strip out every PmWiki markup, then this is not an
easy task. I think we would need a bunch of StripMarkup rules, one for
each markup, so the StripMarkup engine can use a reverse Markup Table
with these StripMarkup rules. Basically a reversing engine.

I have no stomach to develop this, sorry. ;-)
