The Python community has a stronger (?) preference for reStructuredText
format. Can that be the default?

That is, I want my text files to be named ‘foo’ (no suffix) or ‘foo.txt’
(because they're primarily text), and have the default be to parse them
as reStructuredText.

This is a great way to start!
