Just as a brainstorm, I wonder if there is a block that could achieve
the same effect?  Or, perhaps, if indentation that looks like the
following could be handled automatically?

  - item
    - subitem
this is stuff pasted flush left.  we know that it is a body because
there is no blank line between subitem and "this is stuff".

this is another paragraph of the body  we know that it is still part
of the body because it is followed by a subitem and there is no blank
line after it.  this is a little kludgey and maybe there is a better
    - this is another subitem that terminates the plain list item above.

Perhaps this was already considered?
