Is there a built-in function to strip all pmwiki markup from a string, 
leaving just the text? I searched around but didn't see anything 
built-in. If no built-in is there a recipe that I could look at the 
provides this?

Background: BlogIt shows the last 8 (or whatever) user comments in the 
sidebar -- only the last 60 or so characters are shown, to keep things 
short. However, a user could enter a comment with [++++ Some Huge Text 
++++] or %red%colored text%% and so on. What I'd like is a very simple 
mechanism to just strip the markup.
