Definitely not. In the first case, I wouldn't want to special case
this. Though, I wouldn't mind adding support for *yet another filter
type* - dlopen. Nonetheless, Lua serves the highspeed case rather
well. But in fact my real concern is that different sites have wildly
differing requirements on what kind of markdown they output. Github
flavored? Italics within words? Should it filter out dangerous HTML?
Etc. Too many decisions, that are best off to a tweakable script.
