You're right of course.  Sorry about the mixup with the attribution.
Nick, your previous post that mentioned org-drawers helped my hide the
eval line.  Thanks for that.

As for the #+BEGIN block, my installation shows these lines in a
rather gaudy orange, which I do find distracting.
I found that those lines do have their own face, so I made 'em dark
grey (my background is black).  I can still see them, but it's the
text in the block that stands out now.
