Well I'm only "half" serious. Look at http://orlando.pm.org ... it's got alot 
of bugs, and some of the features don't work ... but I did use 
CGI::Wiki::Kwiki as my reference implimentation. And I need to add in a 
copyright notice for alot of the code I liberated from CGI::Wiki::Kwiki so 
y'all keep your copyrights.

It makes calls to CGI::Wiki to get the Hash of the nodes, then takes that and 
passes it to XML::Generator::PerlData and LibXML::DOM::Generator ( i think) 
to turn it into an LibXML DOM which is then passed out to some LibXSLT 
stylesheets. And soon to be fed into the AxKit output stream.  The whole 
shebang is organized by SAWA which is a web application toolkit 

It's all very slick, and I plan on supporting a transform for RDF, as well as 
transform to other XML Dialects in the future. Mostly it's  a matter of 
replacing the TT display logic with XSLT, not very hard at all. Ultimately I 
would like to run the same treatment over OpenGuides. 

If you'd like to inspect the code, lemme know. I haven't published it anywhere 
because it's not finished yet.
