[texworks] Feature/enhancement request

Needing to write an Algol-68 program, I thought to use TeXworks as my 
editor of choice, but although it was easy to add the Algol-68 compiler 
to the list of "typesetting" engines, the compiler bauled (perfectly 
correctly) at my line-1 typesetting engine pragmat :

    % !TeX Program=Algol-68

To make this acceptable to the compiler, the pragmat itself would have 
to be wrapped in PRAGMAT delimiters, as in :

    PRAGMAT % !TeX Program=Algol-68 PRAGMAT

Is there any possibility, do you think, to make the syntax of the line-1 
typesetting engine programat more flexible, perhaps defining it in terms 
of a regular expression to allow other compiler syntaces to be supported ?
