One reason I've held off on major updates for so long is the idea
that if I'm going to break compatibility with Markdown 1.0, it'd best
to break it once, in multiple ways. Better for one Markdown 2.0 that
breaks/changes/clarifies several things all at once than than a bunch
of 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 updates that break things here and there.

Plus, anything outright new, like tables, is by definition going to
break compatibility with 1.0 implementations.
