With Athens inside the image we will use the pier parser to generate a document tree and render it inside the image.
Now one step at a time.
>> There are some PEG grammar for markdown, maybe it could be reused so PP can parse it :)

What most of you do not get is that. But I do not care about Pier format. I care about a REAL solution that can produce a REAL document tree AND that ***I*** can edit and maintain and enhance so that I can create books.
So I'm pragmatic we wrote the seaside book with pier so I took pier because I do not want to write a MD parser and building model
and reinventing the wheel. And I do not want to have to learn a new language just to make sure that I can write books.
