I once wrote a substantial C library cum Lua application in Anansi [1], with
Pandoc markup as the target text language, and in the spirit of open-source,
made a small source code contribution to the tool.

All I can say is that the effort is considerable. Towards the later phases of
the project, all that kept me going was the thought of not wasting the time
that had already gone into it.
