Question thread #64

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

<dw-access> tag

Setting aside for the moment the question of whether there's room in the development schedule, would it be technically possible (without extreme contortions) to implement a custom <dw-access> tag that changes the view access for a part of a message. For example:

This sentence is public.
<dw-access type="private" text="Note to self">
This sentence is private.
This sentence is back to public.

On my Livejournal, I sometimes write a public entry about something, and follow up with a friends only message with details I don't want to be public, a more restricted custom access list, or the note to self that I mentioned in the example.

If it's an extreme contortions kind of idea, I suppose I'm best off continuing that practice here.
