The only thing I don't like about plugins that use shortcodes is that
if you disable the plugin, you're left with a bunch of markup that no
longer renders. While not as user friendly, it would be nice if
Wordpress supported shortcodes in HTML comment sections, i.e.
<!-- flickr: <someid> -->
or something like that. That way when the plugin was disabled the
user wouldn't see anything.
