If someone want to discuss alternate syntaxes, count me in.

Speaking of Markdown, there is a new version of the plugin that 
implements what I've discussed before and it gets things *almost* 
perfectly right. But what should be a simple 'add_filter' function call 
is taking 53 lines of code to work around the issues I pointed out 
before. And I have the feeling the next WordPress version will break it 
one way or another -- some workarounds are rather fragile and dependent 
on other filters being where they are now. I think this illustrate 
quite well the problem.
