I can't speak for 37 of the 39 implementations, but I know that
in my case I *do* desire to work with the reference implementation;
the detail that I'm doing it in G-d's own programming language(tm)
was an artifact of not wanting to carry around Perl (Or python, or
any of the other interpreted web scripting languages) just to have
a reasonable markup language available to maintain my web pages.

The existance of the markdown discussion list is pretty good evidence
that there's a desire to work together.
