Hi All,

I often find myself wanting to work on a region of a buffer in a
different mode from the current one.  For example, I'd like to use
markdown-mode on the body of a weblogger.el blog entry, and then I'd
further like to use c++-mode (or whatever) on code snippets within that
entry.  So I'd like to first narrow the body of the entry into markdown
mode, then narrow again to c++-mode, then pop back out to markdown mode
on the whole body, and finally out to weblogger-entry-mode on the whole

This seems like it must be an incredibly common need, but I've never
seen anything designed to support it.  Closest thing I've seen is, but it only handles part of
the problem.  Anyone got a hint for me?
