[rfc-i] From Pandoc To RFC

It would be really nice to have a web page somewhere that listed
these tools and provided links to them, regardless of whether
they are supported or not.

The old Tools "RFC authoring" page,
http://tools.ietf.org/inventory/author-tools, which used to do
that job, now shows "This page is not being actively
maintained." in red at the top.

I don't think that developing and keeping such a page needs to
be a big deal and wonder whether you would be inclined to put on
your ARSE hat and just make it happen as an RFC Editor activity.
