This is interesting because firstly I think it's a little subjective whether this is a bug.
Looking at the behavior of 3.x, it appears that it doesn't do any form of span caps if you put brackets round.
Likewise using the official Textile reference, at http://textile.thresholdstate.com/ this also does not include the brackets in the span tags, so I would say this is by design behavior.
It's down to Jason or Why though to have the final say
