It probably wouldn't be too hard (If I could remember any dsssl) to
write a dsssl stylesheet for XSL FO in which case Jade could read in an
XSL FO file and spit out rtf, mif, tex or whatever.

There was talk at one time of making the jade back ends directly
available to an XSL rather than DSSSL front end but I don't know
if anything came of that, and writing a DSSSL sheet to read XSL FO is
no doubt easier than modifying the sources of Jade:-)
