I don't mean to step on anyone's toes, but this doesn't change the problem, it
just adds one more layer to it. There's XML and there's proplib's subset.
There's xml$foo which produces proplib XML, and nothing else to one-way
convert XML to proplib XML. The external tool approach doesn't work, because
one would like to be sure proplib stays as it is before writing such a tool.
If it's a part of the xmltools suite though, this argument won't be valid any
longer and everything will be just fine, I guess.

Great to hear that.

Once again, I'm opposed to XML in this particular case, not to xmltools. It's
like using a sledgehammer to fix a nail. That's what my infallible gut feeling
(TM) tells me.
