QTextMarkdownWriter: write fenced code blocks with language declaration
MD4C now makes it possible to detect indented and fenced code blocks: Fenced code blocks have the advantages of being easier to write by hand, and having an "info string" following the opening fence, which is commonly used to declare the language. Also, the HTML parser now recognizes tags of the form <pre class="language-foo"> which is one convention for declaring the programming language (as opposed to human language, for which the lang attribute would be used): So it's possible to read HTML and write markdown without losing this information. It's also possible to read markdown with any type of code block: fenced with ``` or ~~~, or indented, and rewrite it the same way.
