??? Sorry, are you realistically proposing a convolutive pile of shit
like XML for simple config files?

I will send *each*and*every* bug report due to misconfiguration due to
human incapability of editing XML to you.

No please.

In upstream TeX Live which is distributing over 2G of material for 15
different arch/os combinations, we threw out XML in 2005, because
it is a pain in the ass, and nothing nothing else.

Ever heard of 
	grep, sed, awk, ....
all these nice things that make your life happy. Trash them when you
are doing XML.

No please - I don't mind the key = value in group config format, that
is readable, usefull, easy to edit.

Everything but XML. *EVERYTHING*.

Best wishes

A bromton is that which is said to have been committed when you are
convinced you are about to blow off with a resounding trumpeting noise
in a public place and all that actually slips out is a tiny 'pfpt'.
