Unfortunately it's too simple.
The inability to add an attachment is a non-starter.
And frankly, the "markdown by default" causes a lot of problems.
Everytime somebody pastes in a script with "#" as comments, and don't
know to set it as a block of code, it turns into gigantic headlines.
Just a PITA.

*IF* there was good attachment system and if markdown was "opt-in", then
maybe there would be a discussion.

Btw, DPorts issues are handled at GitHub.
