[tex-live] Recommendations for viewer_md

one possibility for a general markdown convertor that could possibly
be included in texlive by default would be to use the markdown.lua
I haven't tested it much but it worked quite well on a couple of
README.md files that I tried

texlua markdown.lua

which made a reasonable README.html and avoids having to handle
Japanese characters in the terminal with less or more.

It's only 38K of lua in a single file so quite a lightweight addition.
