I have a mostly working VRML export. It's not fully finished (IIRC doesn't correctly place flipped components model) but it's somewhat usable already.Component models are placed as external VRML entities (i.e. included by filename); I tested the files only with blender anyway, but I succesfully re-exported them for interference checking (the reason for which I needed the export facility).

I left it alone because of other priorities but if you want it I could package a patch against the current codebase.
