Hi Harven,

I understand your point -- yes, from a purely theoretical point
of view, we should be able to use another character than "*" to 
match headlines, because org-mode is derived from outline-mode.

If you can go through Org's code (or motivate someone to go thru the
code for you) and check where the "*" is hardcoded instead of being
inherited from outline-mode that would help a lot, because I'm busy
with other changes I find more important right now.

>> Can't you live with the "*" as the headline character?
> That's a pretty rude answer, I must say. 

Sorry if that sounded rude, it was not my intention and I asked this
sincerely.  I'm still interested in your answer btw :)

> I don't know a single language (language as e.g. english, russian,
> spanish...) that uses * as an headline character.

Er... I don't know a single language that depends on Emacs to be 
spoken.  Org does.
