It was not meant as an insult; by "unreliable hack" I was refering to
my own first implementation. Of course, I was also referring to a
general implementation strategy, still "insult" seems a bit strong.

I'll try to refrain from further discussing this issue. I have to
admit that from memory I can't think of any case where the approach
you describe would fail with RTF---at least with the help of markup
text in a buffer. My personal opinions are of no concern here.
