My first thought is that the headings in the wiki page should probably
transfer to comments in the code. And I assume the actual code in the
zim page is formatted as blocks of verbatim text.

Continuing that thought you could even define a special copy-paste
format that turns all normal text into comments and only leaves
verbatim blocks as normal text.

Does this make sense for your use case, or am I assuming to much about
how you use it ?

( Only complexity would be the different comment styles. Probably you
would need a variant that uses "#" for comments and one that uses "//"
for comments. )
