no, i don't think that pandoc is the right tool for this case.

what it could provide, is a conversion to a format that scribus already
knows (html, odt).

but -- afaik -- those plugins do not work in a way that i can describe
as sane. or, at least, i have never managed to get them to work in a
way that was sensible to me!

on top of it, using pandoc would make scribus depend on pandoc, which
is not something i want, either.

i got some hints on the #qt irc channel, and tomorrow i'll try to work
on a parser based on qlalr.

i have uploaded on github the boilerplate for the markdown plugin and
created a qlalr branch i will work on:


let's home i can grok it!
