Well, I maintain [PHP Markdown][1] and [PHP SmartyPants][2] which can
both be used natively as WordPress plugins and although I don't use
WordPress myself I think I'm doing a good job at ensuring everything
works right.

I know there is also that [TextControl][3] plugin for WordPress that
allows Markdown and SmartyPants on a per-post basis (using PHP
Markdown and PHP SmartyPants as the backend), although it hasn't been
updated in a while and probably has some issues.

Do you have any other "version" in mind?
