This sounds like an interesting option for a site I need to convert in
the next several months, with about 1500 pages. I don't have embedded
metadata, but the directory structure of the existing site would let me
generate at least the basics. Would you consider sharing your script in
the hints/tips section of the Drupal contrib/sandbox area? I'm betting
a number of folks would be interesting in seeing what you've done, and
maybe using the code as a starting point. I have no illusions that it
would work as-is for my needs, but adapting might be quicker than coding
from scratch.

Kind regards,
