[OS X TeX] Using TeXShop as a markdown editor

I have been experimenting with pandoc recently.
pandoc takes an input file (usually markdown) and writes an output file (latex, epub, ...)
There is a shortcut to create pdf from markdown via latex called markdown2pdf.
I wrote an engine file to call markdown2pdf and open the resulting pdf in TeXShop:
set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin $HOME/.cabal/bin)
The only problem is that TeXShop does not accept .md as something it can run an engine on.
Of course I can use the .tex extension, but this will not work when I use the long way:
md -> tex -> pdf.
From the engine folder I see that this is possible with asymptote and lilypond.
Is there a way to support markdown as well?
