This is a useful tool !

I would like to suggest allowing customization of the syntax to indicate a tag, e.g. {# #} instead of <<< >>> (You just knew someone was going to say that, right ? :-)

I only mention this in the hopes that it still early enough for you to write the code in such a way to allow this even if you don't implement it right away.
