Reusable Blocks?

I would like suggest a feature: I would like to have the ability to save favorite blocks or other snippets to a library. I find that my clients' ongoing, branded communication often relies on reusing text-images blocks that worked well in prior mailings. It would get great to store them in an way that makes them easily retrievable. This would also be a nice value-added feature for agencies as a way to provide suggested drag-n-drop blocks for our clients. The blocks would need to be editable after dropped into a mailing.

Thanks,
Steve

Emily--I've been thinking about this further and I'm really liking the idea of being able to maintain a custom set of reusable blocks. This would also be a great idea for agencies and Emma for that matter, to provide customers with nicely formatted blocks that are ready to go for a variety of purposes.
     You've already done that with the email templates, which are fun to use but sometimes you just want to create your own thing and not be limited to the constraints of a template. Having some interesting blocks to drop in and modify as needed would be a great time-saver and would probably improve the look of many custom email designs.
Thanks,
- Steve

Hey Steve, 

Thanks for the additional info!  Emily has actually taken another job and isn't with us any more.  She'll be missed for sure, but I'm taking up the reigns!  

I'll keep you posted on the progress of this as I hear back from our Product Owners.
