How can I export all of the posts and comments from a Drupal story node into the Movable Type import format

I have 600+ weblog entries in a Drupal installation that I need to move to Expression Engine, which will accept imports in the MT format.
I have read everything I can find on the Drupal, Movable Type and Expression Engine sites, support fora, wikii and still can't find a Brad-grokable way to make it happen. I can find a dozen or more ways of moving from MT to Drupal, but nothing vice versa.
Using the import/export module of Drupal gets me a little short of halfway there, as it exports in either a CVS or XML format that I might be able to coerce into the MT format, but it doesn't include comments and its got other issues that make me itch (exporting creation/modification dates as UNIX format, as one example, that would require translation before importing). There's another module called importexportapi that appears to be in development, but the beta version I downloaded doesn't seem to play nicely with my Drupal installation.
I'm at my wits' end and I'd rather like to finish this project without manually cutting and pasting hundreds of entries and comments. Hayalp!
