It needs modifications to parts of the parser to work properly.

improvements over the current methods so I'll package them up in a
patch for Andi to look at.
At present, p_get_first_heading() (inc/parserutils.php) gets the first
heading information by searching the document for the first header
instruction. This works fine if your headers come from the dokuwiki
native heading handler, but fails if headings are provided by some other
Its also potentially inefficient as it needs to search the instruction
list for a page until it find that first heading.
Quick question before I do this.
(1) adding a new piece of meta data, meta['first_heading']. If the
value is empty, the native header syntax will fill that with the first
heading it comes across. Any alternate method of handling headings can
do the same. Then as long as everything behaves well, there will be no
clashes and the first heading can be set by anything.
(2) the first heading information gets added as the first instruction in
the list by the _finalise handler. This would guarantee that the first
heading information is quickly accessible in every document.
Taking this a step further, could all the page meta data get added to
the first instruction in the page. This opens up the possibility for
native syntax modes and plugins to add page settings information in a
controlled manner that could be used by other parts of dokuwiki simply
by reading the first instruction.
Either this could be done by adding a new instruction at the start of
the file - an instruction that has no output but fills the
$renderer->meta array. Or instead of adding a new instruction, add the
meta data as the data for the current document_start instruction (it
currently has uses data).
