It was really easy to implement this as a plugin and because all of Dougal Campbell's text filter suite plugins are identical in architecture, I decided to implement the whole Text Filter Suite for Wordpress system in the J! Framework (basically I'm reusing 95% of his code and slapping some J! love on top)
Currently I'm working on a custom JParameter so that users can configure all the plugin's aspects from within the plugin settings (it also makes adding a new TFS plugin really easy - just put it with the others). So when I'm done with that and when my Joomlacode project is approved, I'll post the complete package there, post a link here and see what the wonderful Joomla people think.
