Hi,
I'm not aware of anyone writing a plugin for this format, but
I don't think it would be too difficult as it is mostly an .xml
markup file containing the content inside a zip file.

I don't know if any of the greenstone developers have short term plans
to write one, although personally I'd like to see this implemented.
If someone else wrote one it would be gratefully added to the
core distribution, of course.
