I'm hoping you meant for that to be public; if not, my apologies for
forwarding a private message.

Yep. There are two possibilities: Either you create a program that
reads in a file of format you invent, or you make a set of Python
functions and classes that mean that the format is actually a Python
script. Instead of writing a file parser, you use Python's, and the
program you write is actually a module rather than a top-level

Producing output on stdout is one of the easiest and most standard
ways to export content.
