The script is written in Python, so your server must Python enabled in order to use the script. The current version of the script could only run through command-line or Windows batch script, so you must have the proficiency in Python in order to use the script. For the non-programmers, you can host the script at Google App Engine, that able to run Web-Based application written in Python.
Currently, it only supports the conversion between Wordpress, MovableType, LiveJournal and Blogger blogging system. That means bloggers should be able to convert their blog data into another blog system format.
The future version of this script will support the BlogML data format and a capability to synchronize between blog system using API (application programming interface), but not import-export abilities.
