I tried this neat code snippet today with Emacs 26.3 and Org-mode
9.1.9 and I got an error:

| org-export-barf-if-invalid-backend: Unknown "nil" back-end: Aborting export

When I execute the following code, I get the same error:
| (setq region "/foo/ *bar* https://example.com baz")
| (org-export-string-as region 'md t '(:with-toc nil))

Could it be that I don't have "md" as backend somehow? Is there a
hidden requirement?

Do I need something like "(require 'ox-md)"? I somehow noted that
those export requirements are not necessary any more. Maybe this is
