Looking a the XML dump provided from blogger it appears to be similar to what is provided by the direct load API except that the settings, posts, pages and comments are all in the same file with a flag to indicate their type.

To make the existing importer work with a different data source would require some code restructuring to decouple the processing from the downloading of data. Some work in that direction has already been done in this version.


It's a shame that Wordpress.com don't share their work on the importer as they have obviously have a more sophisticated importer than the .org version.

The new Blogger Importer 0.9 does exactly this. The OAuth version no longer works.
