Karl has specifically said he has nothing against OSIS, but he's using
thml because it allows him to do things that currently aren't
supported in OSIS (specifically, cross/internal references aren't
correct in the filter). How could you possibly interpret this as not
caring about anyone but Gnomesword? If anyone actually cared about
using this style of references outside of Gnomesword, wouldn't there
be a. modules that use it and b. filter support?
