something like `gomarkdown`.
Presumably people are creating new content to use in the newer Gopher
So if people are creating new content, why can't they create the same

It's like the people who want to use Fidonet as
to email. I mean, one can use the same protocols in parallel with
the mainstream services.
I was pawing at FidoNet (or other FTNs) as an alternative to SMTP
specifically because it was not SMTP.
Not that anything's wrong with SMTP to prevent it's use. My interest is
in the form of avoiding a single protocol failure.
