I fail to see how this is relevant for the discussion at hand.

AFAIK, nobody is working on this.

No it doesn't: pacman -S pandoc.

The relevant question here is whether we can accept to rely on pandoc for
CSL support.  Any other feature is irrelevant.

At 25MB, a static, precompiled pandoc is probably fine, but for users of
some OSs, such as Archlinux or even worse some OS where pandoc is not
generally available as a precompiled package, it’s a really, really big
dependency.  I may still be the best option, though.


And when I’m finished thinking, I have to die a lot
