No. And I say that this solution is still better than adding an
alternative code block syntax, because while the code block
syntax would address the “new paragraph in a list item, or code
block following a list?” ambiguity, there are more ambiguities
very much like that one.
Eg.: how do you write two consecutive lists? How do you write two
consecutive code blocks?
Note, however, that the “two empty lines end a block” rule only
works at the top-most level, so these ambiguities would continue
to exist in nested lists and code blocks.
