while i do not have a crosswalk per se, i have a perl package to make a 
collection of XML files into an OAI archive, using the filenames as 
identifiers, the directories as sets and a simple configuration file for 
the other info ...

you might be able to use this as a framework since it does on-the-fly 
transformations of the files into OAI metadata formats (the file could 
even be non-XML as long as a translator existed)

i don't think i linked it into the OAI website (yet) - but you can get 
it from:
