Here is my proposal for a simple protocal. I like the idea of having the server be dumb and simply export the entries that I tell to it and nothing more. Doing a CSV like dump would be a simple way to get the data to the user. I'm thinking something like a modified export.bml

How about:

# = comment (duh)
<entry></entry> = signify an entry, this would be necessary to facilitate multi line entries
<eof> = for the last line

The first line could contain the "header" with what columns were exported in a comment. That's the way I'm envisioning the data. I think Brad has some different ideas however. Elaborate on what you're thinking about Brad and I'll try and adapt.
