I'd be happy with an emacs editing mode. Getting colorization and other
dynamic feedback about the status of your markup is extremely valuable,
even if it isn't strictly WYSIWYG. For example, when I'm editing
ReStructuredText in emacs, it still shows me the markup I'm entering,
but the text responds as I enter it. Italicized sections italicize,
headings highlight, etc. That's enough to make editing a lot faster.
