Bug Description

Add "```" around the wiki data and add support in the parser.


 * The wiki is hard to read.

[Test Case]

 * Add the marker tags to the wiki, run snapcraft-parser and check that they are ignored in the output.

[Regression Potential]

 * snapcraft-parse is relatively new. Some other use cases could be affected, so extensive exploratory is required here.

It is related to the fact that I got used to markdown "```" instead of our wiki's "{{{" and "}}}" for this type raw text :-)

Tested in an up-to-date xenial:

- enabled -proposed
- update snapcraft-parser to 2.12
- snapcraft-parser --index <- the wiki contains {{{ and }}}, and the parts are parsed correctly

I'm going to mark this as verified, thanks Steve!
