If your language isn't listed above, check the super-repo. Extending it to your language of choice should be fairly simple, just make it so your script can write \pgfkeyssetvalue{/datax/<tag>}{<value>} to a file. If you end up writing a plugin for a language, or if you want to request one, please make a feature request or send me an e-mail.
