Thomas has markdown and wants pdf. Are you suggesting he convert markdown to
troff and then to pdf? The only markdown to troff converters I can find
probably suck more than the pandoc solution he's currently using.

Am I missing something?

And doesn't zathura use poppler, which is bloated and slow compared to mupdf?
