Add Markdown support

Markdown has become the standard markup for writing programming documentation (and blog posts and so on). It would be nice if Haddock could support a superset of Markdown (i.e. with support for identifier references and so forth) via a pragma:

{-# HADDOCK Markdown #-}

That way we could produce much richer docs, containing tables, bold text, section headers (without having to add those headers to the export list), etc.

This is a great idea that many people have proposed before but no-one has taken a stab at. It would be a good SoC project.
