[O] Question on nested-blocks syntax

Hi list,

I was wondering about the current block syntax, specifically about
nested blocks.  The current way to get nested blocks requires escaping
of the nested block commands, e.g.

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  ,#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
    Meta-example
  ,#+END_EXAMPLE
#+END_EXAMPLE

My personal feeling is that it would be nicer to allow nesting blocks
simply by indenting them:

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
    Indented meta-example
  #+END_EXAMPLE
#+END_EXAMPLE

I'd be very interested to learn if this (IMHO nicer) second option could
be supported or if there are ├Žsthetical or technical reasons for not
supporting that syntax?

I'm the author of pandoc's org-mode reader and we initially supported
the latter syntax as it felt cleaner.  Since we are striving for maximum
comparability with Emacs as the reference implementation, this specific
feature has since been removed from the reader.

Is there any chance that indentation-based nesting will become legit
org-mode syntax?

Thanks,

Albert
