I've tried it and it works nicely. The possibility to have one-source-does-all
is tempting. ;)

Now I wonder if you're still behind the tool and/or whether it is still
actively used by you?

Another question for both you and Aditya in regard to the point made by Mojca
(suggesting to use Asciidoc markup) is whether you find that Pandoc's
(extended) Markdown is semantically rich-enough to cover more complex documents
or in such cases it would be better to use richer markup like Asciidoc or simpy
to directly use ConTeXt?

So far, one thing is clear: ConTeXt is the way to go instead of LaTeX and other
options, but now have to resolve whether to use pandoc's markdown, AsciiDoc or
just ConTeXt...

As the ignorant perform their duties with attachment to results,
the learned may similarly act, but without attachment, for the
sake of leading people on the right path.
