[feature] Add =image to perl pod #18169
Message ID:

I've proposed addition of images to pod, as discussed at [1], and would like to
ask for some more discussion here as well The idea is rather simple, to
introduce a P<> tag in two forms, P<foo.png> and P<title|foo.png>, that would
get converted to image in graphic formats, and ignored otherwise.

The image URI would be related either to the pod file location (without leading
/) or to the distro root (with leading /), that would allow referencing both
locally installed images as well as web views on github and metacpan.

Image title would get converted into <figcaption> in html, if present.

In case a graceful fallback is needed by an author, the following trick could be


=begin text

^ y  **
|  ** 
|----------> x

I'm thinking about working on a patch however I don't want to find myself in a
situation where it would be rejected or premature because the very topic is
undecided yet. 

Let's discuss this.
