Looks interesting. Can you, maybe, provide an example if you already
used this system? (You may commit it right to the repository, or
create a GitHub gist.) Or, if I overlooked existing one, just point me
to the URL.

I know that the Markdown + Pandoc works (not perfect, but works). I
also know that there are many less convenient setups. If the process
is too complicated, it will harm the contribution rate.

Will do.
