Re: Pre-RFC: markdown in pod
Message ID:
What if we punted on much of this and allow:


    This is basic C<markdown> plus `pod`.


I was thinking about this because I saw the Playwright documentation ( which clearly has some accidental Markdown that's unrendered:

    See and drill down into your relevant
    version (run `npm list playwright` ) for what the classes do, and their usage.

We don't promise more than basic markdown support.

    * this
    * would
    * be
    * a
    * list

    =over 4

    =item * this

    =item * would
    =item * also

    =item * be

    =item * a

    =item * list


And we can look at something proper later? You'd get the basic convenience of Markdown but the other features of POD. Older POD parsers would simply default to what we currently have.

No tables until we could figure out something later.
