MovableTypeFilter: Is there a way to export all unpublished entries (drafts)? It would be a million times easier for me to go through them all offline rather than one at a time with MT's cumbersome interface. I'm running MT 4.21. Even challenging solutions are helpful.

Over the years, my MovableType database has become littered with tons of unpublished drafts. So many, in fact, that they've become a lost cause. Many of these are crap ideas to be tossed, but there are a few unfinished gems scattered among them. What I'm hoping to do is export all drafts, and then delete them all. Then, offline, I'd scan through them to find the 5% that's worth salvaging. The offline part is easy... but exporting those drafts seems to be impossible.
I'm open to creative solutions here. Any ideas? How do you deal with all of your unpublished drafts?
