You want a raw list of all members in a category? That's simple enough
- I would write a special page extension which basically disables the
standard OutputPage and just echoes everything in plain text.

You could, of course, go for something fancier - e.g. XML. I have a
strong suspicion that the BotQuery framework can handle this, as well
as the MediaWiki API itself in newer versions of the software.
