​Thanks for the clarification.

That was simply a slightly cryptic reference to use of markdown I've
seen in other settings.

Yodl is used for all internal documentation, including manual pages;
as it's working OK I don't think discussions to change that have ever
got very far --- it's easy to plan for, massively harder to do.

I would imagine markdown, if used at all, would be restricted to a few
package files that are currently plain text.
