Escape or change comments format

to Mako Templates for Python

I have created a script that takes files, with Markdown and Mako sentences. First, I render the template in mako, and then in Markdown. For example:

## Level 2 Title

% for i in [1, 2, 3]:
### Level 3 Title - ${i}
% endfor

The problem is that mako thinks that the lines starting with "##" are comments, when they are titles really. I know I can escape it with <%text>, but, is there any way to change the comment tag in mako? If not, I would have to change all the comment tags in the markdown files, and it would be more difficult to read.

Thanks in advance.

Mako is not that extensible but you can add a preprocessor that
search-and-replaces for "##" lines and puts the <%text> around them.
