`rst2rst <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/rst2rst/0.2>`_ is a third-party 
It has a partial implementation of such a reStructuredText  writer. 
Since the implementation is not complete, it cannot handle most documents...
That said, contributions are welcome! As an example, I haven't found a 
smart implementation for elements such as lists. Let me know if you have 
questions about the project.
