Uriel, have you looked at halibut?

I use it for a couple of projects, though I have a shell script to
adjust the html to my own needs. The markdown is tolerably easy to learn,
the license is liberal, and it is (meant to be) fairly portable C.

I don't like it exactly, but it's the least obnoxious thing I've found
for generating multiple forms of documentation.

But, having rarely seen presentation slides with ( SNR > 0 ), I don't
entirely understand what you are looking for.
