How can I make Quickly convert the long_description in setup.py into several paragraphs in the debian control file?

Quickly throws the error below if I put "\n" in the text, and every other way I try just leads to one long one-paragraph description (i.e. everything concatenated in a single paragraph).

Generally – can we use any type of markup – bullets, etc.? I see some entries in USC that use bullets in the description, so it must be possible.
