	Would this "format" not serve well to be XML, as I believe someone
is already working on a GNOME-based lib for the reading/writing of XML. They
intended that to be the internal document format, even went so-far as to
suggest that it be the internal object passing protocol. It sounds like the
"much enhanced text item" would fit perfectly as XML, IMHO.
