just on the off chance that somebody has done this already, is there an
export engine for creating Aiken or GIFT format exam questions?

I assume not, so my next question is where to start?  I want to take
something like this:

#+begin_src org
  ,* What is my name?
  :answer:   3
  1. Joe
  2. Martha
  3. Eric
  4. Fido

and generate (assuming Aiken format):

What is my name?
A. Joe
B. Martha
C. Eric
D. Fido

I can probably do this quite easily with awk (my language of choice fo
text manipulation generally) but it would quite nice to be able to
export directly from org.

The second step would be to be able to select a random number of
questions to export from a larger question bank.  Suggestions for how to
do this also welcome!

By the way, I am not wedded to the format shown in the org example but
the output does have to match what is shown (upper case letters, upper
case ANSWER immediately following).
