You know, I can see using Markdown in something like a README where it
will be read in plain-text (the plain text of markdown is prettier
than textile), but for issues, comments, and messages where no one
will be reading the plain text, GitHub is parsing it with "GitHub
Flavored Markdown":http://github.github.com/github-flavored-markdown/
and that makes me grumpy.

I personally find it tedious to write in Markdown and I wish they'd
add a Textile option.  Do you too?  Then vote here:
http://github.com/defunkt/github-issues/issues/#issue/
106 (click on the little vote arrow to the left of the issue title).

Let's build a Textile coalition!  Maybe we can even get Stephen
Colbert to make a TV ad for us. ;-)

If I mark my fie as

README.textile

It parses just fine on Github.

Yes, and wiki pages appear to be Textile too, but comments, issues,
and messages are Markdown.

Ah-ha. I didn't know that. Thanks for the clarification.
