No objection from me. I just think that a markdown manual collaborated 
with on GitHub is less collaborative (i.e., someone has to do the 
integrations and approve them) as compared to a Wiki, where they just 
have to be monitored.  I doubt that Benny has that much available time 
to do the integrations, and I think we'd all rather that Benny focus on 
continuing to make MM the best damned MUA for macOS. :-)

On the other hand, if we have volunteers to do the editing from 
submissions, then my concern would go away, and a manual format is 
oftentimes that best format for certain people because of the linearity 
(it's not my desired format, however).

That's my $0.02.
