This seems like a good compromise for not breaking existing sites, except
where the authors have put the [= on a subsequent line. I personally would
be inclined to always use (:markup:) (:markupend:) on my sites because it
is much more readable.

This would work too, but I still like the upper version better. It has the
big advantage of not breaking any existing sites.
