Have you looked at ? Seems to be much more faster than python-markdown2 that Askbot is using now. Misaka is a python binding to Sundown, a C library to parse markdown. It is being developed and used by the Github folks and apparently also by Reddit.

Right now we are not limited by the speed of converting markdown into HTML. Maybe something to keep in mind for the later.

I am thinking of potential performance issues since I hope my deployment will become popular. In any case, I agree this isn't likely to be a serious issue now but do take a look at using it when you have time. It doesn't hurt to be more efficient :-)
