I'm not specifically aware of anyone who has done this, but it should be pretty straightforward -- since you can harvest MARC records, the process of mapping the data shouldn't be too difficult. Just a matter of figuring out how to prevent ID collisions, and coming up with an efficient workflow -- probably "harvest, merge records, import merged blob" would be best; the current batch-import-marc script is very slow if it processes one record at a time. Of course, if you're just experimenting for proof-of-concept purposes, speed may not be too important at first, and skipping the merge step might simplify the process.
Let me know if you have questions/problems.

I was wondering if anyone has imported the HathiTrust OAI archive into VuFind for their patrons to be able to search easier?
