Hi Jacob,

I absolutely love this, and I think it will make life much, much easier :)

The one comment I have is that I don't see an easy way in the mockups to
copy the code without including line numbers.  I always find it helpful when
sites that show demo code have a link to the raw source, a javascript link
that will copy it to my clipboard, etc.
