It sounds the old AUR package "haskell-pandoc" pointed by
"http://pandoc.org/installing.html", which is no longer available, is
the same new community "pandoc" package.  How complete or incomplete
is that pandoc package I wouldn't know.  Installing from source uses
"cabal", whereas the PKGBUILD for pandoc uses "runhaskell" directly
with several options.

I'm not a haskell guy, so I can't tell, but it seems that pandoc plus
other community pandoc packages, might be equivalent to the pandoc-bin
in AUR...

I'll just try it out.

Thanks all,
