Wrapping the files will make it slightly more annoying to parse, since
the regular expressions will have to span multiple lines. Speakin of
parsing, does anyone know if there is an equivalent of yacc/bison/CUP
for php? If there were, we could have *real* parsers in WP, rather than
these regex hacks. There's something nice about a formal grammar...
