Are adding editors really so simple?  It seems like there are a lot of
"quirks" that could use some polish.

For example, write half of a story in Plain Text and then decide to
switch to the advanced editor... switching editors blows the existing

The wiki syntax also could use some polish (I remember having problems
with it trying to use it for sample "code" blocks, it couldn't deal
with curly braces).

How hard would it be to add BBCode support for story editing?

Just some ideas / possible itches worth scratching.
