I've written an analysis explaining why it is so difficult to integrate 
*correctly* an alternate syntax into WordPress. It's all done in the 
perspective of Markdown. It explains all the workarounds I have to 
implement to correct existing problems in the plugin.

I wrote this in part hopping it will inspire someone to improve the 
text filtering system for WordPress. The current one is very powerful, 
but in my experience it's a mess to work with.

If you read it, don't forget to take a glance at the text-flow diagram 
I made. Here is the text:
