      Description

      Currently, "md" is the only extension identifying markdown files for Doxia. There are many [0] extensions identifying markdown. GitHub uses "md", but it is also interpreting markdown somewhat differently [1]. Wikipedia article [2] offers "markdown" as an alternative extension, citing [3] the author of markdown, who agrees [4] with proponents of this extension.

      Please, add a support for "markdown" extension;
      possibly keeping it for standard markdown and leaving "md" for the GitHub style.
