Technique to extract all records from xapian DB?

I am trying to add minimal support on 0.84 for the old "0.82" format
in which JE metadata was saved on external disks.

By minimal I mean read-only, fail-safe, and generally with small
impact on the codebase. I sure don't want to reimplement the old DS

Is there a simple (and cheap) way to read the xapian DB and extract
all the records, complete?
