I dream of having a general Python parser for Org mode files, knowing
every bit about the current syntax for Org files, surrounded by enough
Python machinery to make it useful.

One non-negligible problem is that such a tool, to be very complete,
would need an Emacs Lisp interpreter, which is all of an undertaking in
itself.  Maybe that some half-heated compromise could be developed?  A
hundredth-hearted compromise is likely the most I could do!  :-)
