Oh, I thought the goal was a message fontification tool, but it sounds
like you're proposing a tool for composing HTML email.

There does exist a very similar Org-mode based tool for composing and
sending HTML email [1].  This tool converts inline Org-mode to HTML
(with a plain text multipart/alternative) inline in the message and the
results render correctly (including attached HTML images) in at least
gnus, Thunderbird and Gmail.

Maybe automatically converting indented code to the relevant text/x-lang
mime type (with a text alternative) would be simpler but achieve much of
the desired effect?
