Extra markdown suggestions

Hello List,

I have recently started using Michel Fortin's PHP "Markdown Extra"
implementation to programmatically transform my markdown text files into
HTML. Firstly I'd like to say markdown is very cool -- thanks to everyone
involved :)

I'd also like to suggest two additions to markdown:

1) I very often use /this/ markdown to indicate emphasis since I find it
much easier to type and read than _this_ or *this*.

2) I also use additional setext style headers like this:

Header 1

Header 2

Header 3

Header 4

Header 5

Whether or not these suggestions would be a worthwhile addition to the
markdown syntax is one topic.

Another topic is about how to go about changing Michel Fortin's PHP code to
implement these changes. Is this the right forum to discuss such code

Thanks List,
