Two should suffice, IMO.

I always found it extremely annoying that Markdown provides no
way to express multiple consecutive blockquotes, lists or code
blocks, other than by using workarounds like inserting comments
or other crud like `<div style="display:none"></div>`.

(An added problem with breaking out of code blocks is that
Markdown considers lines consisting only of whitespace to be
blank, so you couldn’t have code blocks with consecutive blank
lines in them.)
