Okay, so yes, we'll go with Markdown then.

I think we can support multiple markup types (and even just plain but
sanitized html) later.  The main thing anyway is that when we federate
between instances we'll probably be getting the rendered html of
descriptions, comments, etc of external works, so we'll still need to
have an html sanitizing setup available to avoid cross site scripting
