2016-01-18doc: convert to perlpod(1) from Markdown
perlpod(1) is already installed by default on Debian and RedHat-based systems; and probably most modern *nixes; pandoc(1) (and Haskell) are not. POD also more standardized than Markdown (which flavor? :P), especially for generating manpages. So save any potential documentation editors some disk space by not forcing them to install Haskell and pandoc. Finally, I'm a mildly proficient in Perl and do not know Haskell at all and have a better chance at reading/hacking the source if the document generator breaks.
