It would be more or less the same as every UNO API based export, iterate 
over the document, the pages and the shapes. Instead of getting a 
MetaFile from the shape (using Graphicxporter) you would get the 
sequence of primitives and use that as base geometry information.

You cannot use this when you want to develop an extension, the UNO API 
for primitives is minimal currently and thus you would have to link 
against office components (what the definition of extension does not 
allow). To do this, the most needed primitives would need to get an UNO 
API implementation first.
