I installed pandoc via apt on an Ubuntu Server installation (don't recall if
it's 10 or 11) without any trouble.  Pandoc does have some optional Markdown

seeing the syntax, I have not played around with it yet.

Unless someone else has input on the capabilities of RST to break down a
single document into parts, I'll start investigating that next.
