There are various export filters, but I’d like one that just does a
complete, raw dump of the internal memory structure[*]. I could start
with something like the HTML export and work backwards to output other
tag names, but it seems like it should be possible to just dump the
data structure.

My brief couple-of-hours foray into this was unsuccessful. I ran
aground in various places where I couldn’t really grok the structure
well enough to deduce what to output. And possibly where my elisp
coding skills are a little weak.

Before I spend another few evenings poking it with a sharp stick, does
anyone have some code that walks the data structure in a way that will
make it easier? (Or has someone else, *gasp*, solved this exact
problem? :-))

                                        Be seeing you,

[*] I have really good XML tools for querying, transforming, and
otherwise manipulating the data. I want to start with as near to
perfect fidelity as I can. I don’t have any short term plans to try to
go the other way, but I might eventually.
