Consecutive code blocks

Hi folks,

I just wrote some Markdown which featured the following code snippets:

<h1>TXJS 2011 Speakers</h1>
<li><span>Brendan Eich</span></li>
<li><span>Alex Russell</span></li>
<li><span>Douglas Crockford</span></li>
<li><span>Paul Irish</span></li>

ul {
list-style: square outside;
color: #ccc;

li>span {
color: #000;

The horrible styling above highlights the trailing whitespace a few lines
from the end.

I would love this to be converted to *two* code blocks rather than one.

I realize that the fenced code extension provided by certain implementations
makes it possible to generate
`<pre><code>foo</code></pre>\n\n<pre><code>bar</code></pre>`, but it'd be
nice to be able to achieve this within including a dozen tildes. :)

Has anyone written a Markdown extension along these lines?
