Syntax for extensions

I need to to slightly extend the markdown syntax. (place an image (img tag)
in text which URL has not yet been determined). Therefore I want to define
something like $[Alt text](img.jpg) which would be replaced by my
pre-processor with ![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg) and then sent to markdown.

Is there any special syntax that should be used for such 3rd party extensions?
How would you do it?
