In practical terms, isn't this what the superset implementations do?
It's not forking per se, but they do "get on with it." kramdown does
everything I need, and I use python-markdown Extra in production [1]
with no more than a few one-off preprocessing tweaks in my stack.
I've probably worn the tread off ten copies of PME over the years. ;)

Who needs when there are next-gen tools to scratch any
itch and that ship with batteries included? Either I'll never
understand the grousing, or folks don't get that any Markdown
transformer is *part* of one's toolchain. Maybe a big part, depending
on what you're doing, but god invented sed for a reason.
