It kind of looks like you would need to take an existing pandoc writer 
(maybe markdown) and rewrite it as a new TiddlyWiki module. But ... it's 
all written in Haskell. It would be quite a time investment to get up to 
speed with Haskell (unless of course you already know it) enough to make 
the changes. And of course you would then have to compile your own pandoc, 
which would probably be easiest on Linux.

Another approach would be to use "filters". Filters change the AST 
(pandoc's internal markup language). The filters are middlemen -- they 
don't create output. It looks like you might be able to use this to turn 
elements into text-based elements and then output as text. I asked in the 
pandoc forum and at least one respondent thought this might work -- with 
effort. Oh yeah, and in that crazy logic of open source code, the built-in 
filter language is not Haskell, but Lua. But at least you wouldn't have to 
compile the resulting code.

And after all that, how many people would use it? Five?
