I'm not against adding this to GHC, but it's trivial to have it as a
separate program (see my markdown-unlit ). Maybe the external
program is more flexible when it comes to extending/bug fixing?
But if you decide to add it to GHC, then please also add test cases for
the proposed code.
As a side note, ```-style code block are not part of "standard"
