I'm in the middle of doing this, myself.

Assuming you're using Linux, if you go to the command line and type:

mysqldump -X --password='YOUR_PASSWORD' DATABASE_NAME >XML_FILE.xml'll get an XML data file in the format:

        <database name="DATABASE_NAME">
                <table name="TABLE_NAME>
                                <field name="FIELD_NAME">FIELD_DATA</field>
                                ...more fields...
                        ...more rows...
                ...more tables...

I have some XSLT files designed to strip out data from that format. Drop me a private email if you'd like them, and I'll ship them off. I haven't done any work to format them yet.
