Since the "text" that is not inside of the \begin{code} and \end 
{code} is relatively unconstrained, would be it cool, or egregious,  
to have a comment which would permit a particular file to designate  
its own literacy boundaries? Bird beaks allow for simple markup, and  
the TeX commands all for trivial integration with (La)TeX, so would  
it really be all that demeaning to allow for other alternatives even  
if you wouldn't choose them yourself? Metaprogramming to specify this  
would be overkill, but constant strings would get you 95% of the way  
to utter generality. Anyways, thought I'd toss out a third  
alternative to "no change or remove TeX".
