How can you populate a Table from an Outline?

I know how to generate the Outline with a formula that references the Table. But I desperately want to figure out how to do the reverse.

Main use case: Plan a project in an outline, complete with tasks and subtasks, and turn it into a table without the hassle of dozens of clicks to build out the parent-child relationships.
