I've got a writer that basically does this, although it's outputting text
+ a list of marks on the text each of which has a start/end range and a
style (and optional callback since I'm using this ultimately for screen
display w/ links). This seems like perhaps close to the the right
intermediate step all binary writers could have in common, with a second
pass for outputting?
The code isn't very surprizing so maybe not that useful but if you want
it, let me know. I don't have a sand box but could add it there if I had
It's also designed to output plain text + a bit of fluff for reading as
ascii that doesn't look like ReST (tho I've abandoned use of that mode so
it's probably partially broken).
