SharePoint collection tool.

I have a login to a SharePoint site.  I would like to find a way to collect all available information using my login.  I don’t have access to the physical server or SQL database which host this data.

To be more specific, here is a list of what I am trying to collect:
-      All library information.
-      All documents.
-      All document revisions.
-      All meta data regarding documents (including document revisions).  This is to include user data along with all date information.

It would be great if there was a third party tool that I could purchase to do this.  I do have an understanding of C# and XML. So if there were a way to do this programmatically I can make that possible.

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

There's plenty of Powershell around to inventory a site like this, however the assumption is usually it runs on the server.

Chris O'Brien has published some work on running Powershell via CSOM, and has such a script to iterate sites in this article;

It would only take a little further work integrating more inventory type commands into his script to get what you want.
