Give your newlines example, I can see this is something requiring
careful consideration. There are times where I'd like easy control
over molded or saved formats (e.g. MOLD produces a nice format for
object spec blocks, but then you have to strip the "make object!" part
if you only want the block), but it's not a killer issue.
Once you have modes available for blocks, then do you need to offer a
way to set defaults, so all blocks in your app can use a particular
set of modes without having to set them individually? What other modes
might there be and how would they simplify our lives or let us do
things we can't do now? Those would be my questions.
