   Still, as something to aid human comprehension -- which is
   presumably the main intent (even if not the only one) -- the
   indented form seems much better...

How about indented but w/ only opening markup, minus the org-mode
syntax and plus language-specific comment syntax (redundant, but
that's good) as the first line.  Something like:

  ;; -*- emacs-lisp -*-
  (setq confused (not confused))

Here is an intervening column-0 text blurb that also serves to
delimit the code block.

  # -*- shell-script -*-
  confused=`expr 1 - ${confused-1}`
This makes copy/paste even more straightforward, and is
recognizable by humans and programs alike (w/ some simple
heuristics, begged/borrowed/stolen from Emacs itself, bonus!).
