Has anyone thought about a general framework for exporting Org documents?  I
seem to recall from somewhere that it was possible to export an Org document to
a lisp S-expression, and then parse the S-expression to generate the desired
output.  But have not seen this implemented.

The benefit of this approach is that then building an exporter to any output
format becomes trivial.  In fact a translator, let's say from Org to Beamer,
could be implemented as just one function that describes how each lisp tag
translates into a Beamer tag, instead of a 1500+ lines-long program such

It would be very beneficial to have such a general translation framework
implemented in Org.

Best regards,


PD: there are several formats to describe documents as S-expressions, here are
some of them:
