 What I'm envisioning is simply a function/class that converts a system
object into a string or text file that can be used directly as the input
to Metatool.

 I haven't looked at your Metatool module in detail, but unless you
already have a comprehensive method for interfacing with the input side
of Metatool there shouldn't be any need for retrofitting to do this.

 How does that sound?
