Huh, that's funny. I was just thinking about that in the context of this
post, as pointed out by Bruce d'Arcus:
<http://kronavita.de/chris/blog/archive/2005/01/converting-bluecloth-to-
pdf.html>

So it sounds like that XSLT would be one place to start.
I have to think, at least with XHTML-basic <http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-
basic/>, that going in and renaming a few of the elements in x-contml
would get you a lot of the way there, as well.

I have to think that <http://tidy.sourceforge.net/> is a worthwhile pre-
processor to have in one's arsenal, and I pointed out <http://www.re.be/
css2xslfo/> to the foXet list just the other day. Technically speaking,
if that converts to XSL-FO as well as it appears, ConTeXt could well be
the back end to it.

But to answer your question, no I don't have anything per se. I'm just
thinking about it. (And, because of PhD obligations, that's all I'm going
to do about it, for the time being!)
