Ok, here's a call to someone that knows PHP (since I know only enough to be dangerous...)
I stumbled across a really cool MT hack, and was wondering if this would be easy to do for WP? Since I've installed the Super Uber Blockquotes hack (which works great), it seems like this is the next logical step. Check out this page for citations, and this page for quotations.

* daringfireball.net (3)
