No, EXPERIMENTAL/org-export.el. Here's what I did after M-x load-file

(defun org-export-sexp (arg)
  (interactive "p")
  (let ((bufstr (org-export-parse arg)))
      (switch-to-buffer (get-buffer-create "*Org export*"))
      (insert (format "%s" bufstr)))))

An org file such as:

* Q3 2009
    :SCORE:    0.77
** Operations

*** [#0] Oncall. Keep the site up
*** [#1] Keep the tubes clear.

** Projects

comes out as:
((:level 1
  :heading Q3 2009
  :properties ((SCORE . 0.77) (CATEGORY . proj-sanitised))
  :content :subtree
  ((:level 2
    :heading Operations
    :properties ((CATEGORY . proj-sanitised))
    :content :subtree
    ((:level 3
      :heading Oncall. Keep the site up
      :properties ((PRIORITY . 0) (CATEGORY . proj-sanitised))
      :content  :subtree nil)
     (:level 3
      :heading Keep the tubes clear.
      :properties ((PRIORITY . 1) (CATEGORY . proj-sanitised))
      :content :subtree nil)))
   (:level 2
    :heading Projects
    :properties ((CATEGORY . proj-sanitised))
    :content :subtree nil))))
