Preview in Q&A

What do people think about having a preview in the Q&A section? Only brief answers are allowed (as should generally be the case), so if you accidentally post over the limit, your response is trunctated. I had this happen the other day and I had to make an Editor Request to vroom to get this corrected.

With a preview, we could see if we're getting cut off, or if we forgot that closing </I> tag, etc.

    I like the idea purely from the point of view that I can make corrections / pretty up the format before anyone gets a chance to see it.

    I would like to be able to preview all of my posts.

    In addition to maverick's excellent point that it is important to edit, a preview/post cycle winding at a message saying that you posted this could stop the occasional irritating multiple submission we get.

    I like the idea of previews, particularly for things you cannot edit later.

[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
[Corion]: Ah. The magic invocation is set PERL5OPT=-M-lib=. (equivalent of no lib '.';
[Corion]: )
