Probably not.

I'm abusing nntp¹ to control a blog engine, though, and there it would be
really nice to be able to render text/markdown when viewing an article :-)

Maybe I could just make a washing function that runs the contents
through pandoc, before shr does it's thing?

  Best regards,


¹ It is astonishing how many things nntp is well suited for - forums,
  mailing lists, RSS/Atom feeds, and - I think - also blogging.
