It is? Why? Are there any technical reasons for this besides "Windows uses it"?

For simple key=value-type configuration that may need grouping, I really don't
see an issue. XML tends to be rather long-winded, and the hierarchical format
that apt uses doesn't have a readily-usable parser outside of apt (at least not
that I know of).
