Word Count Targets

Hi Brett,

Longtime daily Marked2 user. Been looking at Ulysses and Scrivener again recently because of their iOS apps, and one feature I really like is per-document word targets. I was wondering if it would be feasible to add this feature as part of Marked2's per-document special YAML syntax. Something like "word target: 1200", which would make the big word count bar at the bottom of Marked show something like 44/1200 words. Or even using an icon, like a circle progress bar, would be cool.

Just a thought! Keep up the awesome work, as always. Looking forward to BitWriter.
