I thought of using the filename, e.g. foo/bar/cat.mdwn ->
foo/bar/index.html with the page title cat. However that limits one
markdown per dir. That's not so bad, but expressing that as a Makefile
is really hard. So hard I gave up.

I'll stick with grep, but I was wondering which variant of regexp I
