In some format like json, xml, etc. So we can create external renderers.
The HTML backend and Vim backend can be replaced by this entirely maybe.

Proposed by @dramforever, I like this idea.

He says Jekyll has nothing to do with Agda (#3386), so does HTML.

We discussed this in private a while ago, and I felt that dealing with technicalities like that is outside of the scope of the official Agda compiler.

It (Edit: I meant a hypothetical tool that deals with all kinds of formats) doesn't even need to be third-party -- it can even just reside within agda/agda. I just don't think it's worth cluttering the compiler.
