Was there an advantage to Text::Balanced? I know the previous parser
was sort of relying on first/last tag of the block to have lower
indent than the rest (with some fallback heuristic) -- but that would
normally be the case. This new use of Text::Balanced introduces
problems even with that formatting style, as my previously reported
example shows:

<div id="foo">

<div id="foo">
