Expect this in RedCloth 2.1.0.  I think the idea will be:

- You can add new block tags. (i.e. bq., h1., h2., etc.)
- You can add new markup. (i.e. * -> <em>, ** -> <b>, etc.)
- You can add new entities. (i.e. -- -> &mdash;)
- RedCloth will come with a set of extended syntax that can be loaded, 
if desired.  (per DHH's suggestion that --- => <hr /> and cd. => 
<pre><code> be added.)

Yeah, cool.
