README.txt in Python projects rendered improperly

Bitbucket documentation says

If you have a defined a setup.py file in your repository's root, Bitbucket parses files without an extension or that use the .txt extension as reST also.

This repo proves the manual wrong.

    Hi roman,

    You are correct, our documentation was not complete. Previously we required the repository language to be set to Python as well. However, we think including the setup.py file is enough of an indication to try rendering in reST, so we've updated our code to match our documentation. Your test repository renders correctly now. Thanks for logging this!

    Cheers,
    Michael
