Wonderful idea? Are they available for free?
It should be relatively easy, you could write a small perl app using the new 
swig code, or somebody creates a new EntryPerLine2Module (epl2mod) utility 
for this thing. Would definitely be very nice.
Another, maybe even better, alternative would be to write a backend offering 
native support for Gutenberg stuff. Anyone feel like doing this?
