I sent the last message before I had finished it, sorry. (Note to
self, don't hit Cmd-Shift-D while writing a message in OSX's Mail.)

What I was trying to say is that in some situations you have to
escape brackets and in others you don't... and while things like this
are pretty rare, it's probably better to keep things similar.

In [his [distorted] view][], this isn't something to worry about.

On the other side, since this was never really reported to John, nor
to me for that matter, whatever we choose to support or not unescaped
but correctly nested brackets is probably not that important.
