The BEST way?

Define a "common format" in XML.  Write up some XSLT sheets for the
various storage formats.

  Where A is a format.
  Where B is a separate format.
  Where C is your common XML format.

Wanna get A to B?  Go through C.

This kinda thing is exactly what XML/XSL was designed for.

Party on!
