It doesn't sound like a difficult thing to put together on a rainy
afternoon (which is how many Lua modules get started ;)) but I'm sure
it would not make everyone happy, since the desired presentation for a
piece of XML depends on how you want to view its structure. (E.g.
compare your desired presentation with XHTML.)   Maybe a
template-driven approach, or at least heavily customizable.

On a somewhat OT note, it would be cool if luaexpat had a module to
convert LOM format into string XML output - there would then be the
same problem of customizing the presentation.
