If that's your route, perhaps the "Org element API" [1] might be
helpful. Especially `org-element-parse-buffer' gives you a Lisp
data structure which is supposed to be a parse of your Org buffer.

From there to S-expression can be trivial (e.g. `print' or `pp'),
depending on what you want to do.

Walking the structure should be nice in Lisp, too.

The topic of (non-Emacs) parsing of Org comes up regularly, and
there is a good (but AFAIK not-quite-complete) Org syntax spec
in Worg [2], but there are a couple of difficulties to be mastered
before such a thing can become really enjoyable and useful.

The loose specification of Org's format (arguably its second
or third strongest asset, the first two being its incredible
community and Emacs itself) is something which makes this
problem "interesting". People have invented lots of usages
which might be broken should Org change to a strict formal
spec. You don't want to break those people.

But yes, perhaps some day someone nails it. Perhaps it's you :)
