Shouldn't be inherently difficult; WikiExporter class probably needs a variant (subclass? option?) to pull from archive instead of page/rev, and then some sort of UI to trigger it (either by extending Special:Export or Special:Undelete or both, probably)

Marking with bugsmash keyword; could be a good smallish but useful project for someone at the Berlin hackathon.
