I think this "tricked-out front end" idea is really quite nice. But I
take your point, people are going to get used to the paradigm and
expect it to work everywhere. So lets distance ourselves from the
run-of-the-mill text editors. Perhaps put a red box around our
<wp:loop> tags. Use drag-drop to insert them instead of typing it in.
Stuff like that.
