This is currently not supported and I cannot advise for using it. If it 
appears to work, some other things may break, now or in the future.

I haven't documented some internal variables in the documentation, because it 
is not easy for me to (1) offer support when you change them or (2) guarantee 
that current and future versions will work with them.

This variable is not documented in the manual either.

Sorry, not very likely. MiniEdit is already quite complex, more than what I 
wanted. The functions handling the drag-and-drop, sorting, inserting and 
deleting features may be hard to adapt for multiple elements

The downside is that when you use it, you produce a more complex wiki markup 
which may even more intimidate shy editors. :-) 

If you choose Mini, isn't it for its simplicity and minimalism?
