Great - thanks for the responses!

I had mostly discounted the rails option but it seems to be the best way 
to control the actual output, as there is a bit of processing that needs 
to be done on the data.

I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing the easy way to do this 
rather than wrap a framework like rails around a simple db export ruby 
script!

thanks again.
