Treetop or like grammar for Markdown (in Ruby)

Thanks John, but I've already seen these options.
I'm looking for a nicer Ruby option (with on-the-fly object creation)
which will be easy to extend.
Say, if I had Markdown in Treetop, I could use it for higher-level
object-in-text recognition by just adding some higher-level rules.
Such a parser may serve not only format conversions, but also do
semantic data extraction and such.
I'm not currently aimed at the highest performance, but rather
accessibility of extension.
Any ideas are welcome, of course.
