That's amazing; I somehow said something about XML without ever
mentioning it! Creative reading comprehension at work.

But for the record, I think that XML is a retarded pile of crap
invented and maintained by members of an underclass of unthinking
idiots that unfortunately make up an influential segment of the
computing sphere.

Whatever constitutes the Python equivalent of S-expresions will likely
blow XML away, so just use it!

How is that? :)
