I'm not saying let's not have it; I'm saying I don't think it should
be in core. We need to try to hit an balance in core between stuff
that isn't needed in every situation but is more hassle if we split it
off. I personally can't see myself using this often, because most of
what I deal with is structured or partially-structured to start off
with - so something I can feed text to isn't terribly handy.
