Add Jira Markdown as format in Export Dataset

It would be great if Export Dataset functionality of Toad data grid supported Markdown format. That way it would be possible to copy-paste datasets easily to Jira (and Confluence etc.) and have them formatted into tables there.

Edit: You can almost get there with these settings:
