In addition to the “out of the box” support for the file opened in
various text editors, adding a previewer module etc. there is also
the ability to associate an icon with the file type -- TM does ship
with a document icon specifically for Markdown, but I guess many have
not seen it, because they use other text extensions.

I really liked the mdtext extension as well!

Anyone *not* liking mdtext?

If not, I think we should let that be the recommended extension.
