     I did something similar for 4.5 using perl.
I think that various folks at CivicSpace have
been up to something along these lines also
to help with the old 'admin help text' issue, so
I guess there's pleny of applications.

     If you want the directory hierarchy  of HTML
files to be a Drupal book, you might want to
check out my bookimport.module.   I'm  just
re-writing (in PHP) a command line
script to covert a suitable directory into
an XML file which can be imported.
