FYI: SPOILER tag added to forums

Ok, folks. I've added a simple SPOILER tag to the forums, that conceals any text between the tags, to allow readers to choose whether or not to take a spoiler in a forum post.

It works like this:

[spoiler]This is a spoiler that some may not want to read.[/spoiler]

And results in this:

This is a spoiler that some may not want to read.

Just mouse over the text to view. This is a simple take on the spoiler tag idea that doesn't force a div break, allowing for multiple sections of spoiler text to reside within a paragraph, like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis eleifend, enim vestibulum scelerisque iaculis, ante arcu viverra odio, eget viverra ipsum massa id ipsum. Aenean mollis vehicula consectetur. Duis convallis auctor lorem, nec dapibus nisl pellentesque in. Proin et erat ac lorem egestas hendrerit ut eu sem. Aenean vel risus felis. Vivamus nec massa erat, id consequat justo. Ut at turpis in justo blandit tincidunt et et purus. Quisque tempor dignissim elit non congue. Vestibulum at urna elit, sed facilisis ipsum. Donec enim magna, mattis id elementum ac, scelerisque quis tellus.

An icon has been added to the forum editor to allow spoiler editing with just a highlight and a click.

Enjoy.

I guess my question was deleted with the test topic, but is there any chance of having the button added to the Quick Reply editor as well?
