I'm planning on working on that once Forrest 0.6 has been released.  I'd 
like to add the document2txt transformation and create a suite of common 
text handling bits that can be used by both the (currently existing) 
document2pod and the sooon-to-be document2txt.  For example, have common 
table and list handling transforms.

If all goes according to plan, I'm hoping to have something by early

The only patches that I'm aware of are in JIRA (FOR-125).   These are 
the bits I plan on using in the soon-to-be document2txt.
