I appreciate your work on this, as well Gabor's help in providing new binaries.

But correct me here if I wrong:  It still does not help with this issue as
long as _any other pandoc binary_ is called, correct?

I.e. when I run R CMD check at home on a standard Linux box, I still get an
error.  Unless I switch to an alternate source for the file to continue to
avoid that particular server, or unless I use an alternate pandoc binary.

So just thinking out aloud: Given that a key piece of R testing now depends
on a custom binary, should be we look into providing that binary?  Should the
call to pandoc utilize an 'R-supplied' pandoc version?
