Let me make two more changes to that script. The footnote snippet
clearly shouldn't have the beginning of a URL as the default text, and
there has to be a blank line after the footnote.

use List::Util qw(max);


# Get the highest-numbered reference.
@nums = $text =~ /^\[\^(\d+)\]: /mg;
$n = max(@nums) + 1;

# Escape special characters.
$text =~ s/([\$\\`])/\\$1/g;

# Insert the snippet.
print '[^${1:' . $n . '}]$0'.
      $text . '[^$1]: ${2:Footnote}' . "\n\n";

MultiMarkdown seems to have no trouble with mixing footnotes and
reference links down at the bottom of the file, but it sure does make
a mess.
