This is what inline module does. Only ionline module uses the de-facto 
standard for drupal tookens: [inline: filename]  [inline: numer]

What I want is:
1 something in core. This is a very-often requested feature
2 something very intuitive. No tokens, no HTML, nothing, only a radio or 

You might cvall my client stupid, but it took quite some time to let her grok 
the concept of the tokens. And still every now and again she has to look yup 
the syntax, or concept. That is simply Not Good. No-one should have to look 
up syntaxes, copy-pasrte filenames etc to insert stuff inline. 

Yes, Javascript, HTMLareas are an option too, but they live on the other side 
of the spectrum: they are so complex that that they strive way passed their 
goal: to simplify editing. HTMLareas etc often make editing harder then 
simple HTML.
