Well.. I did it myself.  It's not pretty how it takes care of line endings, but
it works.  If someone knows how to fix it that'd be great.

To implement this, use the attached files and add the following to forrest.xmap
in the source formats section:
          <map:when test="content/xdocs/{1}.txt">
            <map:match type="regexp" pattern="^(.*?)([^/]*).xml$">
              <map:generate type="text2xml" src="content/xdocs/{1}{2}.txt" />
              <map:transform type="lexer"   src="resources/grammars/text.xlex"/>
              <map:transform type="parser"  src="resources/grammars/text.xgrm"/>
              <map:transform src="resources/stylesheets/text2document.xsl">
                <map:parameter name="name" value="{2}" />
              <map:transform type="idgen" />
              <map:serialize type="xml"/>
