well, maybe just maybe you shouldn't wait after all.
i'm sure the model will change, perhaps quite a bit,
but programmers are already stepping up to bat and
there are only so many converters that need coding.
in addition to "official" converters from john macfarlane
commonmark already has two more in other languages.
hopefully the commonmark team will vet these converters,
to ensure they're currently accurate and will be maintained
-- not just to give correct results, but also _work_ correctly --
and prevent a flock of "me-too" forks muddying the waters...
a solid line of converters, sleek but complete, is all we need.
