Terminal launcher for Marked (2)

Marked 2 is a great previewer for markdown. It'd be even greater if I could launch it from the terminal without having to do an `open -a 'marked 2'` etc. dance every time - lots of editors provide quick terminal launch scripts, so would it be possible to get an (official) one from Brett or the Marked team?

Would be great to just say 'marked [filename]' to open a preview of it in Marked 2.

    Given I don't currently provide any command line options, a separate
    binary is more trouble than it's worth. Just add this to your

    alias marked="open -a 'Marked 2'"

    Then you can just type `marked [filename]` as you request.
