Oh yeah.  Umm, one could do this:

   $ROSPatterns['/<<(\\w.*?)>>/'] = '[:$1:]';

which would at least convert the <<...>> in pairs (thus not converting
[[<<]]) and would make sure that whatever followed the << was
a letter or digit.

And if more control is desired, one could do:

   $ROSPatterns['/<<((include|redirect|nogroupheader|title|...).*?)>>/'] =

which makes sure to get only certain directives.

And, of course, {{...}} is available for use again in 2.0, if an
administrator wants to do that.  I'm personally reluctant to say
"this is what the alternate directive markup should be", since there
didn't seem to be a clear favorite in the previous discussion 
So instead I'm just giving each administrator the option to choose
whatever alternative(s) suit her/him the best.

All of this probably belongs in a 2.0 cookbook recipe.  :-)
