Story swapper algorithm and data conversion tool

I have files containing hundreds of stories and meta data that need to be processed by a matching algorithm into a new CSV file.

I need a python program that can take the XML or CSV data file and process it to create a CSV output file. The input XML contains 3000 stories about various things along with a lot of meta data that will be used to match each storyteller to a different person's story, based on similarity criteria. The output file is used for a mass "story swap" that is delivered via SMS (the CSV file can be uploaded to clickatell).

I need in python so that I can maintain the code after you write it.

Program doesn't need to be fancy, but it does need to accept a few user inputs, such as auto-detecting XML or CSV input file, producing the right CSV output file, and perhaps allowing user to choose from one of several matching techniques based on the meta data.

------------------------------------------

Bonus work! Once this program works, I would also need a second program (or an addition to this one) which will append a column to a master log file to track which story (by ID#) has already been sent out to each user, so that no user ever receives the same story twice.
