How to customize the “more” feature

I keep losing this, so I assume other people would want it:

But wait, there’s more!

Matt and I were waiting for Donncha to get through airport customs and discussing possible new features for WordPress yesterday. We decided it would be simple and worthwhile to let you customize the More… link for each post split by the <!--more--> tag. I wrote a patch, Mark Jaquith perfected it and now it’s live on and slated for WordPress 2.1.

Here’s how it works: put a space after <!--more, then the text, then --> like this:

<!--more But wait, there's more! -->
