    • Writing a proper parser is hard
    • We're not as smart as you are
    • A terrible regex implementation that gets the job done pretty well today is a heckofalot better than a beautiful, perfect event-based parser that isn't here yet

    I'm only about halfway kidding.

      I agree with all your points but the second one ;-)

      Since Text::WikiFormat::SAX doesn't work properly I'm obviously not as smart as you think I am ;-)

      But in all seriousness this is something I hope to put right, in a similar way to trying to put right the whole XML parser nonesense. That way I can put my code where my rant is, or something like that.
