In this thread, we've already tested many things with Markdown.
According to what I now see below this text box,

For formatting, uses Markdown; we’ll put a nice editor in place shortly.

So we'll see.

Consider this thread one for current things, minor issues, questions and testing with whatever the tool uses at the moment.

Now to the business.

James made a slight modification to Markdown, meaning if you insert one linebreak, it'll be displayed as such (unlike in the unmodified Markdown).
That didn't change certain depending issues: you do need two linebreaks to close a quote, for example.
Speaking of quotes. Just now, I tried to make stuff in my quoted copypaste look similar to the original - boldening. Well, I used double asteriscs, but it didn't seem to work - Firefox 40 here. I might try seeing that in another browser, later.
