Export

I'm considering, when I get a weekend off work and am not moving house, writing a client which will take either CSV or XML output and make it browser-readable, or something. You can see I've planned it so well.

It's something that I think would be terribly terribly useful. I know there are clients out there that do similar things with journals and displaying a local copy of them as part of an overall package using syncitems, but I'm thinking about people like me who have downloaded their journal through the /export.bml every now and then.

I'm thinking something like an HTML thumbnail gallery generator but for journal entries.

Am I wasting my time so much as thinking about it, as such a thing already exists? Can anyone suggest anything about this basic idea that is so flawed I should stop now?
