I would like to put up some articles I've written as posts on my
jekyll blog, and it would be awesome to have them automatically
converted to PDF through LaTeX, with a link given in the HTML. Since
kramdown supports output to LaTeX PDF, I don't see any reason that
this shouldn't be possible.

Would the correct approach here be to build a plugin that defines a
converter to PDF? It's not immediately obvious to me how I would then
integrate that plugin into the build process. Has anybody ever
thought about doing this before?

I've thought about doing this with pandoc, but decided it wasn't worth the trouble. The few times I want PDF versions of things, I can just do it by hand.

I *think* you'd want to write a plugin for a new format, '.mdpdf' or something. Then have that plugin generate the html output in the normal way, and also generate the PDF on the side.
