Hi, everyone.  One of the Software Carpentry designers has asked whether a
package exists to serialize Python data structures as XML, so that lists
of dictionaries of tuples of etc. can be exchanged with other XML-aware
tools.  Does this exist, even in pre-release form?  If not, I'd like to
hear from anyone who's already done any thinking in this direction.


p.s. has there ever been discussion about adding an '__xml__' method to
Python to augment the '__repr__' and '__str__' methods?
