The primary way of getting nested lists is now to indent the nested list entries relative to the parent list (entry). This looks visually better in plain ASCII for cases when there is a decent amount of text.

Although ChrisSiebenmann thought he wasn't going to, the old style of nesting lists (multiple list start characters, eg ***) still works. It turns out the GNU Emacs will properly autoindent for these lists but not for real indented lists, plus sometimes they actually look visually better.

The amount of old-style nesting is ignored in an indented context; it's treated as just a new level.
