Hi, All.

I have created pulls against gpii-handlebars
<> and infusion-docs
<> to migrate to
markdown-it.  Thus far my experience with markdown-it has been pretty
positive, it was basically a drop-in replacement for marked with one minor
configuration change (enabling html, which is disabled by default).
