I once implemented something somewhat like this.  Personal project,
highly unpolished, not suitable for mainstream use - but it worked for
what I needed it to.

I did it by writing a wikitext -> LaTeX converter.

Now, my stuff didn't handle images or tables, and those are the bits
that are the hardest to convert, so this may be pointless.  However,
it might at least be worth looking into.  LaTeX does make very
nice-looking output with not a whole lot of fuss.

Just my two cents.
