Hi Nicholas,

Thanks very much for your response (and ox.el)! I looked at filters,
but concluded they were not appropriate, because pandoc operates on
the file as a whole, and writes to a file, and can return binary
content (for example, if it is generating PDFs). It seemed equivalent
to the way that the latex exporter uses pdflatex to generate a PDF,
and the latex exported uses a post-process function.

I could be wrong, though. It would also be convenient to have access
to the info plist; in fact, I was going to write another email about
having access to the info plist in a post-process filter.

Is there a way to define a filter that operates on the entire content,
is guaranteed to run after everything else, and can handle binary
content? Thanks.

best, Erik
