I don't think that is the right solution for this problem. 1) from a quick glance at the asciidoc documentation I gather you still need to decide the document class up front - so it doesn't really solve the current issue 2) intention is that export in zim is agnostic of the format used for storage - this will allow e.g. dokuwiki or wikipedia compatible backends - latex export now implemented by Johannes will work for any backend in zim Still we could have asciidoc as an alternative backend. I would be happy to support backends that tie in with various alternative tool chains, however this is a separate discussion. Please note that there are requests for various alternative backends in the tracker already (markdown / restructred text / ...). However so far no-one is working on this. For me it is low priority because I have no other usage of the text except in zim.
