Given that the bundle was calling MultiMarkdown.pl (rather than, say ${TM_MULTIMARKDOWN:-multimarkdown}) I didn’t even think this stuff worked anymore.

The MultiMarkdown support in the default bundle has never really been supported beyond the initial contribution. We can of course add Fletcher’s bundle to the index so users can install it via Preferences. I’m 95% done with the system that will allow third parties to add bundles to the index.

Again, I really didn’t think this was actually useful to anyone.

I am sure you have the skill to checkout a previous version of the bundle ;)
