Support both "1)" and "1." for numbered lists in markdown, as commonmark does. Patch from A. Kupries. check-in: 9d6a0aac user: drh tags: trunk

Several improvements to the image-format-vs-repo-size experiment and the report documenting it: dropped the first 3 columns of data to make the bar chart clearer; drawing the bar chart on a transparent BG in case it's used on a page with a non-white BG, as with a selected Fossil forum post; added axis labels; added a run time calculation to the expensive first step; fixed a few syntax problems that prevent the Python code from compiling on Python 3; documented some problems with running it under Anaconda on macOS; better documented the notebook's dependencies; many clarifications to the experimental report text. check-in: 41e5237a user: wyoung tags: trunk

## Demonstration

The companion [`image-format-vs-repo-size.ipynb` file][nb] is a
[Jupyter][jp] notebook implementing the following experiment:


1.  Create an empty Fossil repository; save its initial size.

2.  Use [ImageMagick][im] via [Wand][wp] to generate a JPEG file of a
    particular size — currently 256 px² — filled with Gaussian noise to
    make data compression more difficult than with a solid-color image.

................................................................................
modify the notebook to try different things.  Want to see how the
results change with a different image size?  Easy, change the `size`
value in the second cell of the notebook.  Want to try more image
formats?  You can put anything ImageMagick can recognize into the
`formats` list. Want to find the break-even point for images like those
in your own respository?  Easily done with a small amount of code.

## Results

Running the notebook gives a bar chart something like⁴ this:
