All right, so three votes for vertical, and my vote was only slightly
in favor of horizontal based on my own authoring experience (I use
gradients a lot to make top-level headers visually pop in a long
list).  Vertical it is.

Edits have been made to the master proposal, located at
http://www.xanthir.com/:4bhipd.  I also added a line with the syntax
to the first example.

I'm not happy with how I phrased the comma thing, or with the fact
that I had to say it at all.  I think it's confusing.  I suspect that
it would be better to handle that in the grammar, but I'm not sure of
how to write it.  Ideas?
