No doubt about that: testing shouldn't impair development. As you've
seen, I'm not against experiments; I've even told you what to change
to get what you requested.

But I'm not interested in *publishing* this as a feature of PHP
Markdown because I don't want to test and maintain a new optional
feature. Not to mention that I think it breaks the syntax. If you wish
to do the maintenance and testing it requires and handle the bug
reports that will come (or ignore them), feel free to fork PHP
Markdown and publish that; the license allows it.
