Well, I really shouldn't, but...
I ran a few tests with hash! instead of block!, with 'select instead of 'switch, with
nested 'either blocks, but it all turned out as bad or worse than the initial experiment.
I manipulate the block too much for a hash! to be effective, and I might have misunderstood
your 'select example, but anyway, it's very logical that the fastes way to do it is with
the original 'html-code parse rule, since two different operations (load/markup & content
manipulation) is there united into one.
A /callback refinement to 'load/markup, as you suggested, would be cool.
