My complaint is that the MultiMarkdown support was removed from the auto-updating Markdown bundle, and that the MultiMarkdown bundle is not available through the current bundle support in TM2.
Hence without any action on my part, a lot of stuff broke on my system.
And installing a third-party bundle (eg yours) that isn't really supported any longer doesn't exactly give a warm fuzzy feeling, and is also beyond what a regular user should be expected to do.
There should have been an official (as in supported by the official bundle download support) MultiMarkdown bundle **BEFORE** removing MultiMarkdown support from the Markdown bundle. And a heads-up in the mailing list would have been nice too.
This is costing me time at an inopportune moment, so obviously I am not happy.
Let me take this opportunity though to say a big "Thank You!" to Fletcher. I am a big MMD fan!

From looking at the github commits, I would presume that my bundle is what Michael is referring to. To be honest, I'm actually glad to see this change --- most of the support emails I get regarding the "MultiMarkdown" bundle are actually related to the original Markdown bundle that didn't seem to actually work with MMD very well. Once I point them towards the "official" MMD version, their problems are generally solved. You are, of course, free to fork it and make your own changes so that it suits your own needs better. Or just modify the version on your machine after you install it.

I'm happy to take pull requests for changes/bug fixes, and I probably need to merge some of the subsequent updates from the original branch back into my fork at some point.
